Another type of BWC certificate — Showing our appreciation to a source

Normally, when our readers think of the words “BWC” and “certificate”, they think of the BWC Certificate of Coverage. This makes sense. The certificate is widely seen and easily recognized. It is the official document employers often frame to display with pride within their business.

Understandably, the law-abiding business owner wants every employee and customer to11.22.13 blog post see that they have secured workers’ compensation coverage from our agency. They know that others see it as proof of the business’s legitimacy and a sign of the owner’s prudence.

That might explain why Greg Bryant, the owner of a Toledo business, Snyder Snow Service, Inc. was surprised when we contacted him, asking to present him with another type of BWC certificate: a Certificate of Appreciation.

A SID Special Agent in Charge explained to Mr. Bryant that the certificate acknowledges the business owner’s referral of a fraud allegation to BWC – a referral that had resulted in the criminal conviction and sentencing of the subject, just weeks earlier.

Signed by our SID Director of Investigations Rick Gregory, the Certificate of Appreciation read, in part:

“In recognition of your exemplary citizenship and proven commitment to protecting the integrity of the Ohio State Insurance Fund for all Ohio employers. Your prompt reporting of suspected fraud resulted in a criminal conviction and the identification of more than $50,000 in savings. On behalf of all BWC Special Investigations staff, we extend our appreciation.”

We believe that the simple certificate is the least we are willing to do to demonstrate our thanks to Greg Bryant and others who are our partners in combating fraud.

Significantly, Mr. Bryant received his Certificate of Appreciation on November 8th, the Friday of International Fraud Awareness Week.
