Workcover claims fraud investigation, phone 1300 966 103, email enquiries@theprivategroup.com.au or 24/7 inquiries form Investigators. Free quotes. Workcover frauds are a growth industry, as more claims are accepted with less investigation by statutory bodies. The cost of Workcover fraud, which is now changing name to Worksafe, may be initially hidden. You may see it as 'someone else' paying a person who is claiming/feigning an illness or injury. This is wrong. The business is being robbed, but you don't know it, yet; you will pay for it with future premiums. If you have a suspicion, act. Experienced private investigators, private detectives, including former police and government agents, available for surveillance investigations, background check, or factual investigations. You suspect, we investigate.

When a Workcover claim is made, and accepted, the insurance premium of the company rises, the injured person then becomes the Workcover customer, as Workcover intend to manage them back into employment.
The more that is paid out for time off work, injury claims, and civil damages claims, the greater the cost of insurance for the business. The level of government enforcement seems to be falling, whilst the PR spin for the few they do seems to be rising, along with the number of suspect claims investigations that are funded privately (private investigation). When you suspect Workcover fraud, Workers Compensation claim fraud, a private investigator, private detective, is there to conduct the Workcover surveillance, to gather the evidence.
The business insurance premium is going to increase based on your claims history.  In the short term it will go up based on the claims for paid days off and associated costs; in the long term it will go up based on successful civil claims for compensation against the business (e.g. through the courts).
This means less profits for the business, less money to pay wages, a lower ability to see out the hard times and a less viable company.  It can place everyone's employment at risk.
Where a false claim is suspected the time to start protecting the business is now. Some indications include:
1. A claim where rumour has it the actual injury occurred elsewhere (drunk hi-jinks, weekend football, followed by a 'slip' no one saw at work).
2. A refusal to participate in 'light duties', or a return to work program.
3. Signs of doctor shopping.
4. Information received that the person is undertaking work, or sporting activities, whilst totally incapacitated.
5. Information about home renovations or other activities.
6. If a Workcover claim is rejected, but the former employee still launches a civil action, claiming injury.
So what do you do when WorkCover fraud is suspected? The choices include try and get the insurer to investigate, and wait, and wait, or hire a private investigator and conduct a private investigation. This is more expensive but faster, and gives you more control. Generally suspected Workcover fraud is dealt with by a period of private investigator Workcover surveillance, because it wasn't apparent when it first occurred; once a claim is accepted some managers see the injured party as their client, and require proof of fraud before progressing to actually commence their own investigation. Workcover surveillance is designed to be unintrusive, the object is to observe the complainant in the natural state, to compare their capacities against claimed restrictions. Where the business exposure is large, the civil claim substantial, then we also conduct due diligence Workcover surveillance, to confirm the claimed restrictions, even if you don't suspect fraud it may be prudent to investigate, to undertake a period of surveillance, to ensure that a recovery doesn't go unreported.
