If you are overpaid benefits the Department of Labor will mail you a determination telling you why you were overpaid, what weeks were overpaid and the total amount of the overpayment. You must repay the money immediately. If you cannot repay it all at once, they will work out a payment schedule for you. If the money is not repaid, it could affect future claims for unemployment insurance. In cases of overpayments made because of fraudulent statements you made, the department can press criminal charges.
Have you been discriminated against by a potential or current employer -- as a job applicant or current employee? To best protect your legal rights you should discuss your situation with an employment lawyer. Meet with a local employment for employees attorney sooner rather than later to protect your rights.
