The most common instances of fraud are purposely miscommunicating the reason for separation from an employer, not reporting employment, underreporting earnings during a benefit week, refusing to return to work, or working under the table. Federal and State Law provide for serious consequences for fraudulent cases including fines, confinement, and an inability to receive future unemployment benefits.
