Legal Question in Civil Litigation in California

I am currently on unemployment after being laid off. My unemployment benefits recently ran out and while speaking with the the unemployment department to determine if I am eligible for an extension, I learned that the company I was laid off by (located in California) reported that I earned wages from them in 2013 in Illinois (the state I currently live in). This is fraudulent, as they are in California. I believe they reported something fraudulent in order to not pay my unemployment benefits.

Is there anything that can be done?

This is probably the wrong category for this. You picked this thinking that you can sue them, but there is actually an administrative procedure set up to appeal the denial of unemployment benefits with California's EDD.

I suggest that you repost your question in labor and employment law, where lawyers who specialize in that area of law will be able to assist you.

Sure, contact EDD ion writing and report the facts and request correction.
