Putting a halt to employee fraud in California

The last thing a California employer needs is to be taken for a ride by a worker filing a false injury claim. Employee fraud is a huge problem in many areas. Employers will want to arm themselves against such illicit behaviors by staying updated on state and federal laws, as well as maintaining close monitoring of the workplace.

One of the most common types of fraud against employers includes claiming an injury took place at work, when in fact, it did not. There have also been many incidents where workers greatly exaggerate the severity of their injuries in order to "milk" the system and collect benefits to which they may not, otherwise, be entitled. Employers will want to keep careful track of workers' stories to compare the details to any witness testimony or medical reports to make sure all accounts align.

Willfully falsifying workers' compensation documents is a violation of labor codes; it may also be prosecutable by law. Depending on a particular situation, a worker who lies about an injury and collects benefits through fraudulent means may end up in jail after all is said and done. An employer has every right to enlist the assistance of an experienced attorney to rectify such situations in the workplace.
