Fraudulent and improper unemployment insurance payments can hamper state programs and increase costs for employers. Naturally, targeting these issues is a priority across the country, and in Arizona, a crackdown on fraud has saved the state more than $1 million.

According to local media outlet The Arizona Republic, 122 people have been convicted for making fraudulent unemployment insurance claims, and the $1.1 million in improper benefits will soon be put back into the state's funds. Out of that group of people, seven have received jail time while 71 others earned probation. 

Clarence Carter, director of the Arizona Department of Economic Security, explained that his agency has many ways to target fraud, and that the emphasis on this task has increased over the past several years.

In addition, the Arizona Department of Administration reported that the state's unemployment rate increased slightly from May to June, up from 6.8 percent to 6.9 percent. Five of the 11 largest industries noted an increase in jobs during that time, led by professional and business services with a gain of 3,900 employment opportunities.
