Employees in many professions are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits when they are injured and cannot return to work. Though this is a great system and benefit to injured workers, the unfortunate reality is that oftentimes, workers will try and game the system and falsely claim that they are injured. This can significantly impact a business, which is why if you are a CEO or business owner, you should strongly consider hiring a Connecticut workers’ compensation private investigator if you suspect one of your employees is not being honest with you. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How does workers’ compensation fraud work?
Essentially, workers’ compensation fraud is when an employee dishonestly states that he or she is injured to obtain compensation. Unfortunately, in many cases, workers’ compensation fraud is easy to commit, as there is a very good chance you are not watching your employee all day long. In many cases, employees will claim that they were injured on the job when in reality, their injury was pre-existing. In other cases, employees will embellish the extent of their injuries, or, in the worst cases, they may even fake or stage an injury. No matter the case, our firm can investigate.
How can a fake workers’ compensation claim hurt my business?
Unfortunately, when employees lie about needing workers’ compensation, it means that they do not care about your business’s bottom line. This is unacceptable, and nobody wants someone like that working for their company. Lying about requiring workers’ compensation will increase your premiums and potentially make your employees very unhappy, as they may have to work extra hours to make up for the work that the “injured” employee would normally do, and, due to the financial hit your business takes, there is a very good chance that you will be unable to promote certain employees or give them a raise.
The bottom line is that in many cases, fraudulent workers’ compensation claims can have a ripple effect on a business, and if you suspect your employee is lying about requiring workers’ compensation, we can help. Our firm can legally surveil your employee to see if he or she does anything that may disprove his or her claim. If you have any additional questions, or you believe you require our services, we are here to assist you. All you have to do is give us a call.
