# 011302Settling Employment Cases: The Effect of Settlement Payments on Unemployment Insurance Benefits
The EDD makes ongoing efforts to recoup unemployment insurance benefits paid after the employee receives monies from his or her former employer. How does the EDD learn of such settlement payments? Will the employee have to pay back the EDD for benefits received? When are settlement monies not subject to repayment? What are the potential obligations of both the plaintiff’s and management’s attorneys with respect to such matters? What are the potential liabilities and pitfalls?
