An employee who has been injured or disabled on the job may receive worker's compensation through the Missouri Department of Labor. If you believe someone has provided false information regarding income or the ability to work and is receiving benefits fraudulently, there are several options for reporting the crime in Missouri.
File a complaint by phone or mail with the Fraud and Noncompliance Unit of the Missouri Department of Labor if you believe someone who is receiving worker's compensation benefits has provided false information.Examples of false information include the extent of the injury or disability, ability to work or claiming a non-work related injury.
