Employment Rights | Improper Payment Rates for Unemployment at 14%

Washington has a relatively high level of improper unemployment benefit at a rate of 14%, according to a Department of Labor report.

Improper payments most likely occur when recipients continue to claim benefits after returning to work, employers or their third party administrators do not submit timely or accurate separation information, and and claimants fail to register with the state's employment service.

For Washington, the leading cause of improper payments related to workplace issues at 72%, then the Benefit Year Earnings, Separation Issues, and whether the employee was Able and Available to work represented the next highest causes of improper payments from 11%, 6%, and 4%.
