With the COVID-19 pandemic there has been a huge increase in unemployment, due in part to the additional stimulus payments of $600, $400, and $300 per week, that were added to federal unemployment insurance payments. Additionally, the states were bombarded with tens of millions of claims they were not expecting. Added to this was the change in who was eligible for unemployment payments and it was a perfect storm for the criminals. Hundreds of billions of dollars in unemployment payments were stollen.

This course will walk participants through the process of assisting clients who have been victims of unemployment. This course will not provide legal advice, that is for the attorneys. It will discuss assisting clients with dealing with the IRS, state taxing authorities, and other government agencies. The presenter will share information on his personal experiences as a victim of unemployment fraud.
