“State and federal agencies are pooling our resources and collaborating like never before. We’re rooting out those who misuse UI Trust Fund dollars, prosecuting more cases, recouping overpayments — and getting results,” said DLT Director Charles J. Fogarty. “I encourage business owners and their back office and human resources employees to attend this no-cost event. Preventing overpayments is a tangible step toward ensuring accountability and integrity in the Unemployment Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance and Workers’ Compensation programs. It’s also a goal that should unite Rhode Island businesses and government.”
