Reporting Employer Unemployment Insurance Fraud

Claimant Fraud

The most prevalent form of claimant UI fraud involves individuals that are working and collecting UI benefits. UI fraud also includes claimants certifying that they are making the required number of job contacts and/or that they are able and available for work when in fact they are not.

If you are aware of anyone that is working and attempting to collect UI benefits or that is certifying that they are making job contacts or that they are able and available for work when they are not, then help stop UI fraud by reporting the activity using the form below. If you prefer, you may report the fraud by telephone at 501-682-1058. Your identity will remain confidential.

Information on the person committing UI fraud:
If they are working, what is their employer’s contact information?
What is your contact information (optional)?
Do you want ADWS to keep your personal information confidential?

We will review the necessary files and records based on the information you have provided to determine the most appropriate action. If you provided information about yourself, you will be contacted, only if it is necessary to complete our investigation.
