Unemployment Fraud, filing appeal with state

Asked almost 5 years ago - Saint Paul, MN

I received a letter from the State of Minnesota that said I did not disclose all of my income to the Unemployment office. I have proof that the clerk at the Job Center gave me incorrect information when I filled out my weekly request form which is what the State is basing the claim on. I need to complete an appeal form. Is there a legal term (or legal basis) for not-guilty because I was given incorrect information by the department's representative?
