Unemployment Claims Alert

Posted February 22, 2021

Unemployment Claims: There has been a recent increase in fraudulent claims made in the Oregon Employment Department’s online system. These fraudulent claims are targeting multiple individuals and units across campus. When Employee and Labor Relations learns of the fraudulent claim, we are sending a specific email to each of these individuals that includes resources to directly notify the Oregon Employment Department of the fraudulent status of the claim and information from Oregon’s Department of Justice on other steps that may need to be taken to protect their identity further.

For any questions related to the status of these claims or our process for responding, please send an email to [email protected].
