Highlight

In an administrative appeal, the Court determines only whether a reasoning mind reasonably could have determined that the factual conclusions reached were proved by the weight of the evidence from the entire record.
To trigger the civil penalties for making a false statement in connection with a claim for WSI benefits, WSI must prove: (1) there is a false claim or statement; (2) the false claim or statement is willfully made; and (3) the false claim or statement is made in connection with any claim or application for benefits.
For purposes of the statute's civil penalties, "willfully" means conduct engaged in intentionally and not inadvertently, but does not require an intent to defraud.
