That is an extremely valid question being asked all over, by many different entities. It’s a real concern. It’s written in the bill to be an additional $600 for four months. For example, if an employer opens back up, calls an employee back to work, and the person refuses, then they would need to notify us. At that point, the issue of work refusal would have to be investigated and the claimant could be overpaid and considered fraud from that point forward, if not returning to work.
