Aggressive Unemployment Compensation Fraud Defense

When an individual or business is accused of providing false information in order to obtain unemployment compensation, this is considered fraud if done willfully. The state will investigate allegations and can pursue charges in criminal court. These are serious felony charges and can result in significant fines and jail time. In addition, a permanent criminal record will affect the rest of your professional career, even the ability to pursue employment.

Our Detroit unemployment compensation attorney will aggressively defend you against such charges. The state often seeks to recover three times the amount paid out, plus restitution. With so much at stake, you want only the most experienced of attorneys. Contact Mary Mahoney for information about how the firm resolves these cases.

Actions that can be considered unemployment fraud include:

  • Failing to report income earned
  • Failing to report change in employment circumstances
  • Receiving compensation from more than one state agency
  • Providing false information to obtain compensation
