Workers Compensation fraud is not a victimless crime. The business will pay for any claim, any paid time off work, any payout for a civil claim, with inflated insurance rates, because it now has a history, rather than relying in industry averages.

Investigating Workers Compensation claims, especially suspected Workers Compensation fraud investigation, is undertaken when there are concerns about the veracity of a claim, the Monday morning injury no-one else saw (and news of the Saturday night hi-jinks all the friends are talking about). The illogical injury claim, the person who never 'gets better' but their injury keeps morphing into something new, or they go doctor shopping, and produce vague certificates. The person who claims they cannot stand the return to work regime, or actively avoid engagement, but word comes to hand they spend their weekends riding trailbikes, or pole dancing.

We investigate for both the Government insured and the self insured business, the employer.
Private investigation, the use of a Workers compensation private investigator, is often triggered because the insurance company won't act, for the self insured, or the Government entity, such as WorkCover, Return To Work SA, Comcare, can't act, once they have accepted the claim, because the focus is the return to work of the injured employee, no matter who is paying the bills. The restrictions placed on Government insurers, by their policies, is amazing, and can just let a fraud walk through, if not action is taken by the employer, through employment of an insurance investigator, a private investigator.
Workers Compensation investigations are not designed to refused the injured worker their entitlements. They are designed to stop rorting, Workers Compensation fraud; some claims are legitimate, some start out as legitimate but then the worker becomes addicted to the no work but paid lifestyle, and starts dreaming of a payout, some are just shonks with a history of playing the system. Remember, for minor injuries there is a two year cutoff for payments under the new system, but for major injuries there is no limit. So the worker will be angling for TPI, total and permanent incapacity, it is a Workers Compensation fraud, which is expensive for the employer. Workers Comp fraud is under reported, because sometimes it is easier to wear the cost than investigate. This may lead to others rorting the system, when other workers see how easy it is.

Workers Compensation surveillance, private investigator surveillance, is about comparing the claimed restrictions with the real world restrictions displayed. The evidence obtained can be used for court, a tribunal, negotiations, but not threatening the employee. This can do more harm than good, triggering claims of employer caused psychological injury. The objective of surveillance, private investigator surveillance, is the discreet observation of an unaware subject, and the recording of images or video, to support those observations. The honest claimant has nothing to fear from surveillance, the dishonest employee does. Once a claim is accepted, an injury in the workplace acknowledged, Workers Compensation surveillance is about the degree of incapacitation, the real world restrictions displayed, which goes towards the Workers Compensation payout received, if Workers Compensation support should be received, the integrity of the claimant, the level of incapacitation the court may determine, if the matter goes that far, which dictates the payout, and the future insurance cost of the employer.
