Utah Code 35A-4-405(5)(f) states that " If the fraud determination is based solely on unreported or underreported work or earnings, or both, and the claimant would have been eligible for benefits if the work or earnings, or both, had been correctly reported, the individual does not lose eligibility for that week because of the misreporting but is liable for the overpayment and subject to the penalties in Subsection (5)(c) and the disqualification periods for future weeks in Subsection (5)(a)."
Subsection 5 a says that if you failed to properly report for one week, you are ineligible for unemployment for up to 13 weeks.
You simply need to explain your story like did here with me and tell them your circumstances and ask for their leniency in this situation (offering to pay back the penalty amount immediately).
It will be within the discretion of the appeals hearing officer as to whether or not to allow you to have unemployment benefits
now. You should become eligible again as a matter of law within 13 weeks.
So, all you can do in this situation is explain that it was for only one week and that you did not intentionally mean to defraud the system, you will repay the amount, and you will be put into desperate financial straights if you do not receive benefits.
