UI FAQ by DWD

The Department of Workforce Development has produced a FAQ on unemployment eligibility issues. This information is somewhat more user-friendly than the claimants’ handbook.

There is also a limited FAQ about how the new work search waivers are being applied.

Finally, there is a FAQ on UI concealment. The concealment examples are not really examples but very basic descriptions dating from 2011. Strangely, there are two questions in this FAQ on employers “aiding and abetting” claimant fraud. There is only one Wisconsin case on employer aiding and abetting that I am aware of, however. That case was easily dismissed. But, employers should note that as claimant concealment expands, employers will be dragged into these concealment cases via this “aiding and abetting” provision.
