Employers and their insurance companies frequently complain that injured workers use the workers’ compensation system to get a “free ride” by receiving temporary disability benefits when they should be working. In fact, the California workers’ compensation system is designed to prevent abuses while assuring that injured workers receive the benefits they deserve.

When employees misrepresent injuries, when business owners dishonestly try to reduce their premiums, it hurts business and that costs jobs and affects salaries.
So we all have a stake in reporting fraud when we see it. Workers’ Comp fraud affects all of us.
