Audit Bureau Uncovers DWD Errors

Mistakes made in late April by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development led to some people getting too much unemployment help – and others getting too little.  The errors were discovered by the Legislative Audit Bureau.  The state agency was processing additional federal aid for the recipients when the mistakes happened.  The Audit Bureau has given the D-W-D until August 14th to determine how many Wisconsin residents were sent incorrect amounts and how much they got.  Secretary Caleb Frostman says his department is implementing all of the recommendations.
