    Report unemployment insurance fraud

    The Minnesota Unemployment Insurance (UI) Program operates a continuous investigation program to detect and prevent administrative errors, benefit overpayments, and tax irregularities. These activities protect the UI trust fund by ensuring that all employers are assessed the proper tax rate and all benefits are paid only to eligible applicants as defined by Minnesota law. Violations by applicants and employers may be criminally prosecuted as felony theft under the fraud provisions of the law.

    You can help prevent fraud by reporting potential violations to the UI Program by using the online Fraud Report. When completing the Fraud Report:

    • Provide as much information on the form as possible.
    • Your contact information can be helpful in the investigation; however, you are not required to provide it.
    • To remain anonymous, simply do not enter your name and contact information in the Fraud Report.
    • Be aware that you will not be updated on the status of the investigation.

    Applicant Fraud: An Unemployment Insurance Specialist will follow up on all potential violations from the public. An example of a potential violation is an individual that is working and not reporting hours or earnings during the same period of time he/she is receiving unemployment insurance benefits.

    Employer Fraud: An Unemployment Insurance Specialist will investigate potential tax avoidance schemes. Common schemes include the designation of employees as independent contractors and the creation of shell corporations.

    Detecting and Recovering Benefit Overpayments: The Minnesota Unemployment Insurance (UI) Program actively pursues collection efforts based on the amount of debt owed.

    Remaining Anonymous: Anonymous reports can be harder for us to act upon if we need more information. If you do choose to provide your name and contact information, we may have to provide that information to involved parties in the event that there is legal action taken regarding the fraud.

    If you have questions about reporting fraud, please call us at 651-296-8715

    Visit the website at https://www.uimn.org/employers/contact-us/ui-fraud.jsp

    In our commitment to serving the HR community, we would like to address the issue of recent fraudulent Unemployment Insurance claims. Unfortunately, with so many layoffs occurring, this is a prime opportunity for scammers to submit fraudulent claims.

    It is highly recommend logging in to your employer UI portal to make sure no one has made a fraudulent claim. If there is a fraudulent UI claim, any business or employee who has been affected can contact Unemployment Insurance by phone at:

    Toll Free: 1-877-898-9090

    Local: 651-296-3644

    Web address: www.uimn.org

    Understanding that wait times are long to talk with a UI representative, if the fraudulent claim is a matter that requires a quicker response, please email deed.dw@state.mn.us and provide a brief synopsis of the issue. If needed, employers can also email jason.wadell@state.mn.us

    We are honored to announce that SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded the Northland Human Resource Association (NHRA) its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the NHRA’s accomplishments in 2018.

    The EXCEL award aligns individual chapters’ and state councils’ activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession. The award recognizes major accomplishments, strategic activities, and tactical initiatives that elevate the profession of human resources.  

    Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM, said, “So much of SHRM’s success in shaping better workplaces—where employers and employees can thrive together— is owed to the hard work of our chapters and state councils such as NHRA. Through their courage and leadership, NHRA is driving true, measurable progress toward the healthy, productive, and dynamic workplaces of tomorrow.”   He further stated that “Awarding this Platinum EXCEL Award is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps this chapter has taken this past year.”
