Unemployment Fraud Attorney for New York
Charged With Unemployment Fraud? Contact a NY Criminal Lawyer
Talk to a New York unemployment fraud lawyer immediately if you have been accused of acts such as the following:
- Misrepresentation of who you are (name, social security number, current address) and employment information
- Lying about looking for work in order to meet requirements for receiving unemployment insurance benefits.
- Failing to report all income earned or received while obtaining unemployment insurance benefits.
- As an employer, providing intentionally misleading employment information on any of your employees or about the wages earned
If you are accused of unemployment fraud, a lawyer with experience and knowledge in white collar criminal defense can help mitigate the damage. You may still be required to repay benefits obtained under false pretenses, but a skilled criminal defense attorney may succeed at keeping you out of jail or keeping you free of a criminal record at all.
The burden of proof is on prosecutors who seek to penalize you for alleged unemployment fraud. A lawyer with a proven track record is an invaluable ally when you face criminal charges of fraud in connection with unemployment benefit claims, workers’ compensationclaims or any type of insurance fraud.
Unemployment fraud charges may mean that you will not receive further unemployment benefits — and you may go to prison. Don’t take chances by waiting until it’s too late.
