Limit collection of unemployment overpayments

Limits collection of unemployment overpayments. In particular, this bill prohibits the Department of Employment Security from charging interest in the settlement of overpaid unemployment compensation where fraud is not an issue, collecting overpayments of unemployment compensation until a debtor has exhausted all administrative remedies, or collecting overpayments during the state of emergency due to COVID-19, including overpayments that occurred prior to the emergency order.
