Expanding fraud control
Expanding permissible uses of amounts in the Oregon Employment Department Special Fraud Control Fund will be looked in Oregon's third legislative session, if it happens. The bill that would take on this issue would be a bill proposed for the Oregon Legislature in the form of Legislative Concept 24
and it would also include legislation concerning the payment of the costs associated with the federal Lost Wages Assistance program.
This bill would provide for methods of collection from debtor of reimbursements to Federal Emergency Management Agency for benefit over-payments required under the Lost Wages Assistance program.
LC24 provides the following details:
- The Emergency Clause would be used in this legislation, as it often is in Oregon.
- Over-payments collected from the debtor by the department shall be deposited in the Employment Department Special Fraud Control Fund.
- All amounts in the Employment Department Special Fraud Control Fund are to be used for administrative costs associated with the prevention, discovery and collection of unemployment benefit over-payments shall be used for the following purposes, as included in the biennial budget of the Employment Department and approved by the Legislative Assembly.
- The Director of the Employment Department may waive collection of such over-payments if the director determines that it is administratively impracticable to pursue collection.
