If an employee has suffered or is claiming to have suffered an injury in the workplace, the consequences can be damaging, both financially and to a company’s reputation. Small businesses, which are often unequipped to effectively investigate these claims, are the hardest hit.
How do you protect yourself? In order to prevent or prove workers’ compensation fraud, you must first be able to detect it. Here are five warning signs to watch for:
While it is completely plausible that an accident could take place while unobserved, an employee trying to commit compensation fraud often chooses a moment when nobody else is around. If the employee rarely works alone but claims to have been alone at the time of the incident, then this may be reason for concern.
If an employee is claiming the 'workplace' accident has taken place on a Monday it is important to establish that this is truly the case and that the injury did not occur over the weekend. If colleagues report signs of injury prior to the claimed time of injury this could be evidence of a fraudulent claim.
Is there a motive for the employee to falsely claim an injury? This is one of the most important questions for employers to consider. If an employee is dissatisfied or foresees an imminent dismissal, either could provide a reason to fake an injury.
If there has been a history of compensation claims within the work place, this increases the risk to employers of repeat claims. A successful claim against an employer may be the first step towards a problematic claims culture within the company.
If an incident has occurred but there are inconsistencies in the report provided by your staff and the employee involved then this could be a warning sign that the claim is suspect.
