Awesome Products, a company located in California, is a company that manufactures and distributes household and commercial cleaning products all over the U.S.A.
A worker was injured at this company and filed a claim to receive workers’ compensation benefits. When the State of California got involved and did some digging, it found that the president of the company had fudged the numbers reported to the State. He under-reported his payroll to the tune of $8 million! That’s workers’ compensation fraud.
Needless to say, this fellow is in some serious trouble! Sadly, I’m never surprised to see workers’ compensation fraud and the lengths that employers and insurance companies will go to in order to save money – even if it means putting honest, hardworking people at risk.
