Workers’ compensation fraud: Learn about it and protect yourself

Find out how BWC’s Special Investigations Department successfully investigates worker’s compensation fraud at the 20OSC15fc.15 Ohio Safety Congress & Expo (OSC15), which runs March 31 to April 2 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

This annual event hosted by BWC helps Ohio employers prevent workplace injuries and achieve better outcomes for injured workers.

The April 1 session, “BWC Special Investigations Department: Partnering with You to Combat Workers’ Compensation Fraud,” will offer a presentation by representatives from the department. They’ll cover the process for participants to identify and report suspected workers’ compensation fraud, and offer case summaries of recently prosecuted subjects.

These fraud investigators will discuss how workers’ compensation fraud impacts Ohio employers and employees as well as red flag indicators of fraud by subject type – claimant, employer and medical provider – while covering the ways that participants can report suspected fraud to BWC.

An April 2 session, “Safety Violation Investigations,” will explain BWC’s role in investigating potential safety code violations. Other session topics at OSC15 include ergonomics, construction safety, emergency planning and safety program development.

There’s no charge for Ohio employers and their employees to attend OSC15, which is the largest regional safety and health conference in the U.S. A full schedule of sessions is available by clicking here.
