Kentucky state audit finds issues with Unemployment Program

Unemployment Claims

LOUISVILLE, Ky (AP) — Kentucky’s Auditor of Public Accounts, Mike Harmon, has announced that the state’s Office of Unemployment Insurance is unable to accurately determine the amount of claims still outstanding while a large backlog of claims remain unresolved. A spokesperson for the Kentucky Labor Cabinet insists that the audit does not include information on how the Office of Unemployment Insurance cooperated with the auditor to provide numbers, and says that the auditor did not accept the information the cabinet offered.
