Lansing, Michigan (AP) – State auditors say the Michigan Unemployment Agency did not demand to review employee surveys or quickly cut off access to previous contracts and computers of government employees to the confidentiality system amid unprecedented unemployment claims at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Their review, published Friday, noted four material conditions, the most serious type of find.
The audit concluded that the agency had done insufficient work to both “attract” and “withdraw” thousands of workers to help with the flow of new and long-standing claims.
The Unemployment Agency agreed with the mistakes and promised to make improvements.
