When people who are able to work take advantage of this program, they are prosecuted aggressively as the government seeks to make an example out of them.

Protecting Your Rights and Reputation

The most common form of workers' compensation fraud is simply faking the injury or disability associated with the benefits claim. Other examples would be making a claim based on a nonwork-related injury or, on the employer side, failing to carry workers' compensation insurance.

In most workers' compensation fraud cases, penalties can be reduced to probationary levels. However, the ramifications of a fraud conviction go far beyond the possible criminal penalties. Fraud is viewed as a crime of dishonesty, so it can be particularly damaging on employment background checks.

Also, employers contribute money to the workers' compensation insurance system, so having a workers' compensation fraud conviction on your record could make it difficult to find gainful employment.
