If you own a business and one of your employees was recently injured on the job, there is a very good chance that you now have to utilize your workers’ compensation insurance to help cover the cost of your employee’s injury or disability until he or she is capable of returning to work. While workers’ compensation is great for workers who truly need it, the unfortunate reality is that oftentimes, people will exaggerate their injuries (or simply make them up) in an effort to take advantage of the system. This is unacceptable, and it can cost your business significantly in the long run. This is where we come in. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Connecticut corporate private investigators to learn more about how we can help ensure that your business is not being taken advantage of. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How can a private investigator detect workers’ compensation fraud?
When an employee either pretends to be injured or drastically exaggerates the extent of his or her injuries in an effort to continue making money without working. Not only is this ethically wrong, but it is also illegal to commit workers’ compensation fraud. Our firm can work to ensure that none of your employees are taking advantage of you. Using a wide variety of surveillance strategies, we can ensure that your employees are not doing gainful work outside of the workforce. For example, if your employee claims he is injured and cannot do any physical labor, though we see him raking leaves, mowing the lawn, or otherwise, we may disprove his claim and save your business greatly.
What are the detriments to a business when an employee fakes requiring workers’ compensation?
When a worker fakes requiring workers’ compensation benefits, it can drastically increase a business’s insurance premiums, meaning that you will be indirectly paying for the “injury” for months, or even years to come. Additionally, while this hurts your bottom line, it may also anger your employees, as they will have to make up for any work that the “injured” employee missed. Unfortunately, just one worker faking an injury or exaggerating an injury can affect a business on all levels, which is why if you are a business owner and you suspect that one of your employees is currently doing this, you cannot afford to simply stand idly by and let him or her game the system.
