D.C. Employee Fraud Investigation Widens

Ad Feedback

Washington, D.C. has fired more than 60 city employees accused of committing fraud and city officials say their investigation shows the problem may be much more widespread.

The Washington Post reports that since 2009, the District of Columbia has paid about $800,000 in unemployment benefits to people who were actually employed by the city.

District Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan is planning to sue those ex-city workers, hoping to recover the money.

Nathan plans to file civil lawsuits over the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, officials are widening their investigation because they have discovered that dozens of other workers may have also committed fraud.
