Fraudulent and improper unemployment insurance claims can end up costing states – and local employers – millions of tax dollars each year. A focus on preventing these types of claims should be a priority, and Connecticut has recently taken additional measures to get some of that lost money back.

According to the state’s Department of Labor, a new campaign titled “Chasing Cheaters” has recouped $415,000 for the Unemployment Trust Fund and contributed to more than 50 arrests.

“Those who knowingly cheated the state’s unemployment system found out the hard way that fraud will not be tolerated,” said Connecticut labor commissioner Sharon Palmer. “Despite repeated requests for repayment and options to set up reasonable payment plans, these individuals refused to make restitution for what amounts to theft. Ultimately, their actions have hurt employers, the taxpayers of Connecticut, and the state’s overall economic health.”

In addition, the Connecticut DOL reported that job growth has remained strong for the state, with nearly 7,000 new employment opportunities added since the start of 2014. In April, the estimated unemployment rate was 6.9 percent, slightly down from March’s figure.
