Superior Court of Delaware

August 17, 2017

MARK MADDOX, Appellant,
v.
INTEGRITY STAFFING SOLUTIONS and UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE APPEAL BOARD, Appellees.

          Submitted: June 22, 2017

         On Appeal from the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board AFFIRMED

          ORDER

          Honorable Andrea L. Rocanelli, Judge

         This is an appeal from the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board ("UIAB"). Appellant Mark Maddox ("Claimant") appeals from a UIAB decision concluding that Claimant is liable for an overpayment in the amount of $7, 260.00. Upon consideration of Claimant's appeal and Delaware Division of Unemployment Insurance[1] opposition thereto; the facts, arguments, and legal authorities set forth by the parties; statutory and decisional law; and the entire record in this case, the Court hereby finds as follows:

         1. On October 25, 2015, Claimant filed a claim for unemployment insurance benefits, and was awarded benefits. Claimant collected a weekly sum of $330.00 starting November 14, 2015 and ending April 23, 2016. When filing for unemployment benefits, Claimant certified that Claimant was unemployed and not collecting any wages from another employer. Claimant had an ongoing obligation to report any and all wages or income from any source during each week that Claimant collected unemployment benefits. Moreover, Claimant was aware that if Claimant was disqualified for fraudulently collecting benefits, then Claimant would be liable to repay any overpayment.

         2. Through a new hire cross-match, the Division received information that Claimant was collecting wages from another employer, Integrity Staffing Solutions ("Staffing Solutions"), while also collecting unemployment benefits from November 28, 2015 to April 23, 2016. Claimant did not report the Staffing Solutions wages when Claimant refiled for benefits each week.

         3. On May 25, 2016, Claimant was disqualified from receipt of unemployment benefits for fraud, specifically knowingly failing to disclose a material fact to obtain benefits to which he was not lawfully entitled.[2]

          4. Claimant appealed the disqualification but failed to appear at the scheduled hearing on June 21, 2016. Disqualification became final.

         5. After disqualification became final, on July 11, 2016, the Division issued an overpayment determination in the amount of $7, 260.00 for 22 weeks of benefits collected from November 28, 2015 to April 23, 2016 by Claimant.[3]

         6. Claimant appealed the overpayment determination on August 4, 2016. 7. On August 5, 2016, a Division Appeals Referee upheld the overpayment determination.

         8. Ten days later, Claimant appealed to the UIAB.

         9. On August 17, 2016, the UIAB affirmed the overpayment decision.[4]

         10. On September 28, 2016, Claimant filed this appeal challenging the UIAB's decision that Claimant was responsible for overpayment.[5]

         11. The scope of review for any court considering a decision of the UIAB is whether the UIAB abused its discretion. Absent abuse of discretion the Court must uphold a decision of the UIAB.[6] An appellate review of a decision by the UIAB is limited to determining whether the UIAB's findings and conclusions ...
