Workers' Comp Fraud
It's Not What You Think it Is
There's a common misunderstanding about workers' compensation fraud. That misunderstanding is that the fraud is being committed by workers who manipulate the system in order to get benefits they don't really need. In reality, most of the workers' compensation fraud is committed not by workers, but by employers.

How Employers Commit Workers' Compensation Fraud
There is a certain way that employers are supposed to handle workers' comp claims. When they get a claim from one of their employees, they are supposed to turn that claim over to their workers' comp insurance company. The insurance company will then decide whether the claim should be paid or not.
Unfortunately, employers try to manipulate the system because they want to avoid having their work comp insurance premiums go up. One of the common ways that employers commit fraud is by asking injured workers to seek treatment under their group health plan. Another way they try to work around the system is by offering cash payments to injured workers, payments that are almost always unfair. If your employer has made a request that doesn't seem right to you, it is important that you consult a lawyer immediately. You do not want to get wrapped up in your employer's fraud scheme.
