As a business owner, you walk a fine line when it comes to workers compensation. In North Carolina, businesses with more than 3 full-time employees are required by law to carry worker’s compensation insurance. And when employees are injured on the job, they justly deserve compensation. As an employer, you must treat the claimant as a valued employee until you are presented with evidence otherwise.
Yet all too often, unscrupulous employees take advantage of the system to claim benefits to which they are not entitled. This is called Workers Compensation Fraud, and it drives up the price of insurance and costs small businesses millions of dollars each year.
Workers Compensation Fraud Can Threaten Your Business
Although it may be popular to paint business owners as cold-hearted for investigating workers compensation claims filed by their employees, the fact of the matter is that if not kept in check workers compensation fraud can threaten the very livelihood of a business and the employees who depend on it.
