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)
