Employee Notice - Reporting Unemployment Fraud

Posted

For more than the last week, all of us have read or heard about the nationwide reports of COVID-related unemployment fraud. We also know that a number of Norfolk County employees have received letters to their home as part of this scam. The IT Departments of the County, Registry and School have all been made aware of this issue and continually work to safeguard our technology and data infrastructure.

At this point, we have every reason to believe that this is all part of the national unemployment fraud scheme.

Please find below a link to the state’s Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) website. DUA has published more detailed information about this scam and established an online Fraud Reporting Form.

The link to the DUA portal is:

We hope you find the link helpful and encourage you to share this information with our employees. We will continue to be vigilant in working with everyone to help address this issue. If you have any additional questions, please contact Michelle Labadini, Manager of Personnel Services, at (781) 234-3432.
