With unemployment fraud impacting the State of Washington, we have published a form for UW employees to use when reporting any potentially fraudulent unemployment claims made in their name to the ISC. Employees who suspect fraud should use this form rather than emailing the ISC to help streamline the investigation process.
If you believe a fraudulent unemployment claim has been made in your name, you must first report the fraud to Washington State’s Employment Security Department (ESD). The ISC will notify ESD that the University of Washington disputes the fraudulent claim charges; the ESD will then use that information to suspend/stop the fraudulent payments.
Additional information about unemployment fraud can be found on UWHR’s Unemployment FAQs page.
