I was recently investigated for unemployment fraud in

I was recently investigated for unemployment fraud in Kansas, due to filing claims while I was working for a temp agency. I didn't think that temp jobs counted for unemployment since you can be let go at any time for no reason, which is why I continued to file my weekly claims. I received a determination in the mail that said that I had intentionally tried to deceive or withhold information to obtain benefits that were not owed to me and that I would have to repay the amount (over $4,000) immediately plus interest and would be banned from collecting I unemployment for 5 years. This is fine, and what I expected but the other penalties detailed are worrying me. It said that anyone that is found to have committed unemployment fraud will be found guilty of theft and penalized according to Kansas theft laws which in my case would be a level 3 felony because of the dollar amount. They will also assess a 25% penalty on the overpayment that I received. Does this mean I will now have a criminal record and could be summoned to court to face jail time? I only have 1 day left to appeal their decision if I choose to, so I'm trying to decide if I should appeal because what I did wasn't intentional fraud. I'm fine with paying back the money plus interest but I do not want to have this on my permanent criminal record or face any jail time over a misunderstanding on my part. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

My name is**. I work part-time (weekends-8 hrs.) But I was

Hello, my name is** . I work part-time (weekends-8 hrs.) But I was laid off from my full time job in Dec. I have been collecting unemployment the past 3 weeks. I accidentally answered 1 question wrong the past 2 weeks by saying NO to: ***** ***** work at all during the week or did I receive vacation benefits or sick pay?" And I forgot to take into consideration that I work Sunday's at my part-time job. And now my claim is under review. My question is, what is the penalty for my stupidity of not answering YES about my part-time job?? Am I going to jail?? -Don

I was claim unemployment benefits, while I was outside of

Hi I was claim unemployment benefits, while I was outside of the country. I didn't know that this was not allowed. When I tried to claim benefits it said that I'm not able to do it form my current location. I wasn't sure why so I called my husband and ask him to do this for me. Now I got a letter asking my eligibility for work.

I received a notification that I am being charged with uniemployment

I received a notification that I am being charged with uniemployment overpayment and fraud. I have been asked to respond. I received benefits for 6 months in 2013-2014 and then they expired - I had nothing for 6 months to support me, my two children and I was pregnant. The terms of my layoff were not fair either - clear discrimination. I worked during the period I was not receiving benefits and was paid later, when my benefits resumed. It is so unclear, I didn't perceive this as fraud? I was actively pursuing work while NOT receiving benefits and when they started again. There are so many people who abuse the system - work six months, take UI for six months - and I have been paying into the system in this state for more than 16 years. When I finally need it, I am being accused of fraud? How should I respond?Thank you
