Fraud Prosecution Program

A partnership combining the resources of the Connecticut Department of Labor and Chief State’s Attorney’s Office is fighting fraud by tracking down and prosecuting offenders for collecting Unemployment Compensation benefits to which they were not entitled.

The partnership has resulted in establishment of the Unemployment Compensation Fraud Unit in the state’s Division of Criminal Justice. Two inspectors and a prosecutor work with CTDOL to identify cases of deliberate fraud and then obtain arrest warrants following a thorough investigation.

Nationally, Connecticut has one of the best performance records in terms of successfully minimizing the number of unemployment insurance overpayments, but Connecticut is making it a top priority to implement new strategies and technologies to help maintain the state’s unemployment insurance trust fund and discourage those who are trying to cheat the system.
