NEW YORK UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - CAN EMPLOYER CONSENT TO INELIGIBLE REQUEST FOR BENEFITS - CONT PART 9

It should be noted that on the DOL website FAQ for employers re "Employer UI Fraud", consenting to ineligible requests for benefits is not specifically mentioned:

"The State Labor Department has a 24-hour toll-free hotline for those who wish to report employer UI fraud. Examples of employer UI fraud are:
  • Paying “off the books” or “under the table” wages
  • Intentional misclassification of workers as independent contractors
  • State Unemployment Tax Act (SUTA) dumping – shifting workers between employer payrolls to improperly use a lower contribution rate"
So the question remains if the three items listed and later discussed are only examples, are there other examples, viz., consenting to ineligible requests for benefit.
