Educating the Legal Community About Work Comp Fraud

A key component to fighting fraud is education. Not just educating our policyholders about work comp fraud prevention but also other entities that workers’ comp fraud might touch, including lawyers, law enforcement and the medical community. In keeping up with ICW Group’s strong commitment to fighting fraud on all fronts, recently, I spoke to a large audience of law enforcement, Prosecutors, Defense Attorneys, and insurance fraud investigators at the annual Southern California Fraud Investigators’ Association Conference in Palm Springs.

I provided training and education that covered ways to investigate and prepare cases for law enforcement involving crimes stemming from the unlawful solicitation of workers and organized criminal activity within the workers’ compensation system.

At ICW Group, we know the best way to fight fraud is when everyone is informed and armed with the latest information and tools. Our policyholders can find anti-fraud collateral and training webinars at our Policyholder Center.
