What is a Private Investigator?
The Bureau of Labor Statistics defines private investigators as professionals who must “gather clues and verify facts for their cases,” but they are much more than that. Private investigators help fight fraud in a variety of industries by gathering information via government record searches, social media checks, and in-person observation. When conducted by licensed and trained private investigators, in-person field investigations are a fantastic way to observe claimants in their natural environments and determine whether fraud has occurred. Video obtained of fraudulent activity by your employees is key if you decide to pursue a 114A fraud finding at the New York State Workers Compensation Board.
