Often, the best way employers can fight against employee fraud is to prevent it from happening in the first place. California employers will want to inform their employees that any false injured worker claim will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Sometimes, this is all it takes to prevent fraud from occurring.
Even when precautionary measures are implemented, some employers still find themselves faced with situations where workers attempt to defraud the system by misrepresenting their injuries. If a worker claims that an injury took place on the job, but an employer suspects otherwise, a request for assistance from an attorney may help determine whether fraud has taken place.
