Dear Customer,

Thank you for using our forum, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today.

Unfortunately, the fact of the matter is that perjury (lying under oath) is a crime that is almost never investigated, and even more rarely prosecuted.

Instead, courts rely on the parties to cross-examine witnesses under oath while they are testifying, and then allow parties to appeal decisions that are made later based on new facts and circumstances.

Depending on how long ago the unemployment claim was, the defendant may have time to file an appeal or a motion for reconsideration based on the newly discovered evidence (this timeframe is generally very short, as little as 30 days), but that is where your recourse is going to be.
