The State of Pennsylvania has changed its mandatory Unemployment Compensation notice to reflect revised information regarding reporting requirements when filing an unemployment compensation claim.

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry has updated the “Unemployment Compensation” notice to reflect that a driver’s license is no longer needed if a person is filing a claim for unemployment compensation benefits. Those reporting claims will now report gross wages that were earned during any week for which they are claiming unemployment compensation benefits.

In addition, computer cross matching will now be used to determine whether any illegal receipt of unemployment compensation has resulted from unreported work, earnings and pensions. A person who knowingly makes a false statement or knowingly withholds information will be considered to have committed a criminal offense.

Employers in Pennsylvania are required to display the update mandatory Unemployment Insurance posting. Labor law postings can change at any time, and it is the employer’s responsibility to display up-to-date Pennsylvania Labor Law posters.
