Workers’ compensation fraud costs approximately $7.2 billion per year according to the Workers’ Compensation Crime Bureau. With so much at stake, workers’ compensation insurers are often motivated to curb instances of fraud by any ethical means necessary.
And while investigators efforts have increasingly included social media surveillance to identify potential fraud, workers and their attorneys have become savvier in hiding evidence that would tend to disprove or raise questions about the validity of a claim.
In addition, employers who make use of social media to find evidence of fraud may be at risk of having the evidence used against them in court if they fail to follow some basic rules to avoid claims of invasion of privacy.
