Like the Insurance Industry, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board claims is an area that is subject to abuse and fraud by employees. Corporate clients, municipal and government clients, as well as small businesses have all had employees that abuse this employment insurance benefit, causing the company monetary loss in time, large surcharges, and safety ratings.
When an injury is reported at a work site, Hughes Intelligence investigators will attend the scene at the request of a client and investigate the accident, identifying and interviewing witnesses, photographing the scene and completing a detailed report.
Where an employer has reasonable grounds to believe that an employee who has commenced a W.S.I.B. claim is abusing the claim or committing fraud, Hughes Intelligence will conduct a professional, detailed investigation and surveillance to obtain evidence of the suspected abuse or fraud.
