I am sorry to read that your husband was taken advantage of. The information he was given by his previous employer is false and quite fraudulent. Unfortunately, if he now has a job, he cannot go back and file for back benefits. Unemployment compensation is not set up for that. You can only contact unemployment if you are currently unemployed for not fault of yours. However, he can file complaint against the employer with U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division ('WHD"), to see if that agency can go after the employer for the fraud committed on your husband and to recover the amount that he would have been entitled to collect from unemployment but for the false information given to him. Click here to contact WHD.
Goodluck with your case,
