Work Comp Fraud Prevention Starts During the Hiring Process

Knowing who you hire is an excellent start to preventing fraudulent worker’s compensation claims in your workplace. A strained labor market has made good hires even harder to come by. That’s why ICW Group recommends you conduct as much vetting as possible during the hiring process. Thoroughly interview job candidates to spot red flags and ensure they aren’t a bad apple in waiting.
