This is not a civil rights question. There is no constitutional right to UC benefits, or to accept them under false pretenses. You may be looking at criminal charges in addition to civil penalties. Consult a criminal defense lawyer before digging yourself any deeper.

It may be that you can agree to pay back the two-weeks' worth of unemployment compensation that they claim you were not eligible to receive. If you are given this option, jump on it quickly. Pay the entire amount back as soon as humanly possible. Sell your car, your motorcycle, your jewelry, whatever you have and pay this back immediately. If you don't, you could be facing criminal charges. If you end up with a criminal conviction for fraud, you may have REAL difficulty finding a job.
