MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A new audit says an unknown number of unemployed people in Wisconsin received too much, or not enough, in benefits from the state Department of Workforce in late April.

The errors came as the department worked to process additional money in federal aid to help those suddenly out of work due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Legislative Audit Bureau said Wednesday that the department should determine how many people were sent incorrect amounts and how much, then report back by Aug. 14.

Agency Secretary Caleb Frostman says the department is implementing all of the audit’s recommendations.
