UI Fraud and Identity Theft
The Department of Labor works very hard to protect the integrity of our agency and programs. To combat and stop unemployment insurance (UI) fraud and identity theft, we work actively alongside local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, government agencies, claimants, and employers in New York State and around the country. NYS DOL has launched a new online fraud resource with important information about protecting your identity from fraudsters, including guidance on how to report fraud, protect your personal information, and observe safe online practices.
