This came up the other day and fits in with yesterday's discussion on willful misrepresentations and allegations of misconduct. Please keep copies of all job evaluations and warning notices you receive...sometimes, after you receive them, you may want to contact an attorney to see what the proper response should be. But, in any event, if you are later terminated and seek benefits, but are denied, your hearing will be delayed as your attorney will need to see these evaluations, etc. before the hearing. If they are not already in the file, they will have to be subpoenaed and this causes further delay.


  1. Hi, I just recieved a letter stating "claimant made false statements. claimants rights to further benefits is reduced by 008 days until 05/02/2013". What exactly does this mean? Am i not allowed to recieve any benefits until the year of 2013? Or do i just have to repay for those 8 days between now and 2013?

  2. Thank you for your comment.

    My response may be deemed "Attorney Advertising" and nothing contained herein should be construed as legal advice - you should always consult a lawyer regarding any matter.

    It would appear you have received a notice of adverse determination or overpayment. You may want to consider contacting an attorney to review this and you may want to consider a request for hearing or appeal. Time limitations for such actions are strictly adhered to.
