Colorado Unemployment Fraud

JAN 07, 2021

A note from Colorado regarding unemployment fraud. 

Like other states, Colorado continues to see increased unemployment fraud activity. Many Colorado employers are noticing fraudulent unemployment claims being filed in the names of active employees. 

When a claim is filed using the identity of one of your employees, you receive a questionnaire by email or U.S. mail requesting information about the job separation. If your employee is still employed, and they state they did not file a claim, please complete the questionnaire as soon as possible. 

Employees who are the victim of UI fraud should submit a Fraud Report online. They should visit, click the “Report Fraud” button, then the “Submit a Fraud Report” button. Their website also outlines other important steps that employees who are victims of UI fraud should take.
