Worker’s Compensation Fraud – Los Angeles, CA

Oracle Investigations Group was retained to investigate allegations that a teacher at a Los Angeles area school had engaged in dishonesty and defrauded his primary employing school by collecting temporary total disability benefits while at the same time collecting employment income from a local community college. Our investigation revealed that the employee had been working for a local community college for over a year while reporting an inability to perform teaching-related responsibilities due to a disability caused by a work-related injury. In addition, the investigator discovered that the employee had been traveling internationally during this time period and uncovered social media posts by the employee displayed information which contradicted the employee’s claim of total disability. Once presented with the evidence, the employee willingly resigned from the school and agreed to pay the school back the unlawfully obtained income.
