MA Man Indicted For Allegedly Collecting Unemployment Benefits While Working

Boston, MA (CompNewsNetwork) - Today, a Lynn man was indicted on charges he schemed to collect over $16,000 in unemployment benefits while continuing to work.  Gary Gaglione, age 43, was charged with Unemployment Fraud (28 counts), and Larceny Over $250.

According to authorities, Gaglione applied for unemployment benefits from the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development's Division of Unemployment Assistance (EOLWDDUA) in November 2005 while separated from his employer and began receiving benefits from November 2005 through May 2006.  During this time, Gaglione was allegedly working full-time for a chauffeur service and failed to disclose his employment status to EOLWDDUA.  

For each of the 28 weeks that Gaglione collected unemployment benefits from November 2005 through May 2006, he notified the EOLWDDUA that he was not working, but that he was able to work and was available for work.  The alleged fraudulent activities were initially detected by investigators from the EOLWDDUA.  Authorities allege Gaglione collected fraudulent benefits totaling $16,128 while working and collecting.

Today, a Suffolk County Grand Jury returned indictments against Gaglione.  Gaglione is scheduled to be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court on March 24, 2009.
