There have been a number of situations in California where workers claim to be unable to work due to injury and are then caught working somewhere else while receiving benefits from their former employers. In such situations, it is often crucial to fight against the potential negative effects of employee fraud. One woman in another state recently pleaded guilty after filing a fraudulent claim, then earning income while simultaneously collecting injury benefits.
Not all workers are honest when it comes to reporting injuries that allegedly occurred on the job. Many California employers have suffered negative impact from false injury claims filed to collect workers' compensation benefits. A recent situation in another state involved a woman who has been charged with employee fraud after collecting almost $70,000 in benefits through a suspected fraudulent claim.
