Wintertime Workers' Comp Fraud

Don’t let the winter weather stop you from pursuing Workers' Comp fraud or FMLA abuse cases. Not everyone hibernates in the winter – we can still catch them shoveling snow, hanging Christmas lights, and hauling bags of snow melt! Our investigators are on the job year-round to bring you surveillance results that you can use to support your suspicions.

Workers' Comp Fraud is big business in the U.S. The National Insurance Crime Bureau estimates the cost of fraud is in excess of $7.2 billion per year across the U.S. Our own Ohio BWC reports “identified” cases of fraud totaled $55,058,157 in 2013 and steadily increased to $60,450,575 in 2015. This is a heavy burden on Employers who face increased insurance rates year after year.

Our surveillance investigators are experts in solving problems of fraud and abuse, internal theft issues, and on-the-job use or sale of illegal drugs and alcohol. We work closely with our clients to lay out a plan that will be effective in their particular situation all the while keeping a low profile so as not to disrupt the workplace or tip off the offenders.

Contact CIC if you suspect fraud or theft in your workplace. Our team will provide you with expert documentation to prove actionable conduct.
