Submit Your Unemployment Questions to The Unemployment Expert
Video Transcribed: “Can I work for cash under the table while collecting unemployment benefits?” The answer is no. To do so would be breaking the law, and I, as an attorney, can’t tell you to break the law.
It’s called fraudulent filing, and there is a jail sentence, and there is a penalty for that. Now if you don’t want to abide by the law, I can’t tell you not to, but I wouldn’t advise it.
Oklahoma Employment Security Commission has a way of finding these things out, and you don’t want to be on the other end of it whenever they do find this out. So the answer is no, you don’t want to fraudulently do that.
You got any other questions? Send them to me, Earl D. Lawson, Oklahoma unemployment experts, and we’ll put it on a video.
Won’t mention your name, but we’ll put it on video, answer your question because there’s other people out there that wants to know the answer to it.
So talk to you later. Bye.
