RS 02101.825 Coverage Development of Reported Wages

In claims and earnings discrepancy cases, field offices should develop the case only if:

  • The worker or employer raises a coverage question; or

  • It appears that the work was not bona fide employment, which means, there is reason to question the genuineness of the relationship or whether the parties involved entered into the relationship in good faith. For information about developing when information in the file suggests dubious employer-employee relationships, see RS 02101.865.
