Unemployment Fraud is treated as a serious crime in New Jersey. If you are suspected of unemployment fraud or you think you are under investigation, hiring a good unemployment fraud (unemployment insurance fraud) attorney may make the difference between success and disaster. If not handled properly, you can end up with a felony record and in jail or prison. Defendants’ names are published in press releases that will likely come up in search results on search engines such as Google. Thus, your future may be at stake!
In New Jersey, unemployment fraud is investigated by the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development. Your first indication that you being investigated for unemployment fraud will likely be a letter from the Department of Labor. Otherwise, they may call you. Either way, they will be requesting information from you. Anything you say can be used against you. As soon as you realize that you are under investigation, call an experienced New Jersey unemployment fraud attorney right away. Bring him or her the letter and follow the directions given to you.
Unemployment fraud can occur when a person is collecting unemployment insurance benefits and does not report that they have gone back to work, when a person is working “under the table” (off the books) or if a person is working part-time.
With New Jersey’s budget spiraling out of control, the Department of Labor and the New Jersey Attorney General’s office is seeking to get back every dollar that was overpaid. Thus, convictions are becoming more common for even smaller amounts overpaid to ensure that funds are recovered and to act as a deterrent for others. Do not assume that you can handle this on your own! Many people have tried to ignore this only to wind up arrested, indicted and then convicted.
