Surveillance video shows Medina man operating landscaping business while on workers’ comp

Investigators with the BWC Special Investigations Department (SID) captured a Medina (Medina County) man on video working as a landscaper while receiving workers’ compensation benefits.

SID began investigating Nicholas Herman after receiving an allegation that he was self-employed and operating his own landscaping company.  Undercover surveillance and interviews with customers confirmed that Herman was working and getting paid while on Temporary Total Disability for a workplace injury.

Herman pleaded guilty to a first-degree misdemeanor charge of workers’ compensation fraud on February 23 in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.  Herman made full restitution in the amount of $1,253.16.
