How to Defend Your Business From The Modern Fraudster

Recently I offered advice on how to detect and defend against the modern workers’ compensation fraudster in an article in Risk Management Magazine. Titled “Deterring Complex Workers’ Comp Fraud,” I talked about how you can protect yourself against the three main categories that make up today’s fraudsters – individual workers, health care providers and legal providers. I also provided proactive fraud prevention strategies for businesses to deploy. Please take a few minutes to read the article and see how the ideas shared can help your business.
