When an employer is taken advantage of through workers' compensation fraud, both the company and its insurer can suffer financial damages. Some professionals may choose to begin the process to reveal the theft and attempt to regain the monetary loss. A woman formerly employed at a local California bank has been accused of workers' compensation fraud after being involved in the robbery that purportedly caused the false mental injury.
The incident occurred when the accused woman helped organize a heist that included armed robbery of her place of employment. During the robbery of the bank that she helped to manage, the employee was staged as having been kidnapped by robbers. The worker claimed to have suffered from her experience and filed a workers’ comp claim for post traumatic stress disorder.
