Lord Interviewed by Michigan Radio Discussing UIA Auditor Report

From Michigan Radio: A report from the state auditor general says Michigan's Unemployment Insurance Agency isn't doing enough to collect the delinquent taxes from employers. Some of those falsely accused of fraud have filed a class action lawsuit against the state. The lawsuit, which was filed in 2015, is currently in Michigan Court of Claims and the Michigan Court of Appeals. Jennifer Lord of Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers is the attorney who filed the suit. She thinks the state may be underestimating the number of victims of the system by a significant amount. According to the statute of limitations, anyone who had money seized from them on Sept. 9, 2012 or later is eligible to participate in the lawsuit. However, what has been learned is that the errors may date back to 2007, which means it could have affected as many as 50,000 people. When the Michigan Integrated Data Automated System (MiDAS) went online in 2013, it did a six-year look-back to find any potential fraud cases. You can listen to Jennifer Lord's Interview Here
