What are some things that can cause fraud?
Fraud occurs when a claimant receives benefits:
- And has refused suitable work and fails to report this
- And is not looking for work
- While working and does not report those earnings
- While working and does not report the correct amount of earnings
- While operating their own business
- And knowingly misrepresents that they are able and available for work (for example, the claimant is on vacation, out of town, in jail or in the hospital)
