SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Unemployment compensation; notice of penalties for false or misleading statements. Requires a claimant for unemployment benefits to affirmatively acknowledge notices of the sanctions to which the claimant is subject as a consequence of providing false or misleading statements to obtain unemployment benefits. The Virginia Employment Commission is currently required to provide claimants with notices when initial and weekly claims are filed that (i) identify the penalties and sanctions to which any person is liable as a result of providing false or misleading statements to obtain benefits; (ii) inform the claimant that making a false statement or representation knowing it to be false or knowingly failing to disclose a material fact, with intent to obtain or increase any benefit, is punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor; and (iii) provide a summary of all remedies available to the Commission to collect overpayments.
