Get involved if you suspect workers’ comp fraud
The Attorney General’s Office has accused a construction worker with stealing more than $25,000 in wage-replacement checks while working. The case is a reminder that injured workers must report they have gone back to work if they have been receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
The suspect was injured when he fell from a ladder in 2017. He allegedly continued to tell Labor & Industries that he was unable to work after he had returned to work.
Retail Services’ Retro members are encouraged to contact their claims adjusters if they suspect fraud so that the matter can be investigated. If you are unsure who your adjuster is, contact Chris Silver, Member Services Advisor, at 360-464-9418 for a referral.
