When someone utters the phrase "workers' compensation fraud," the first thing that comes to most minds is an employee who has faked an injury. But Professor Leonard Jernigan has been tracking the top 10 workers' compensation fraud cases in this country since 2009, and the results may be surprising to most.  Out of the 50 cases he has tracked over the last five years, only one of those cases dealt with an employee committing fraud.  The other 49 cases dealt with EMPLOYERS who tried to cheat the system. Professor Jernigan reports about this year's top ten fraud cases, which you can read about by clicking the link above.  The employer fraud cases mostly deal with employers cheating their workers' compensation carriers by underreporting payroll or performing some other scam to get out paying their workers' compensation insurance premiums.
