DES: Clerk sat on Arizona unemployment appeals for years to avoid work
Officials say a lone clerk in the state’s social services agency trying to avoid work hid hundreds of unemployment appeal requests over more than three years rather than filing them with the Arizona Court of Appeals.
The missing cases finally came to the light starting late last year when people began calling the Department of Economic Security inquiring about their appeals. A slew of newly discovered but old cases filed with the court led to an unusual February order that the department immediately file appeals or face contempt of court proceedings.
