DWS Continues to Fight Fraud With Enforcement Efforts

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Service's Special Investigation Unit continues to make strides in its fraud prevention and enforcement efforts for unemployment insurance and workers' compensation fraud. Since the department's reorganization, Director Joan Evans has placed an emphasis on fighting fraud and protecting taxpayer dollars.

The DWS Special Investigations Unit is in various stages of prosecution for 145 pending cases. If prosecution is successful, up to $2 million could be returned to the state through restitution.
