Raising awareness during International Fraud Awareness Week

SID Badge and SealWe’re tough on workers’ compensation fraud. Since its inception in 1993, the Special Investigations Department of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation has researched and reviewed more than 108,000 allegations of workers’ comp fraud, completed 58,000 investigations and identified more than $1.5 billion in savings.

During International Fraud Awareness Week, we’ll share more tips and cases here on our blog as well as on our Facebook page and on Twitter. We’ve also put together a video that includes footage of several notable cases that were successfully prosecuted in hopes of raising awareness about workers’ comp fraud and generating more tips from the public.

International Fraud Awareness Week is a campaign that was established by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. It encourages business leaders and employees to promote anti-fraud awareness and education to help minimize fraud’s impacts.

You are our eyes and ears! Thank you for your help in stamping out fraud, and please, keep those tips coming. To report workers’ comp fraud in Ohio, click here or call our fraud hotline at 1-800-644-6292.
