G4S Saves Client More Than $300,000 On One Claim

G4S Compliance & Investigations is proud to announce it has saved a client more than $300,000 on a workers' compensation claim

G4S Compliance & Investigations (G4S) is proud to announce that after an in-depth workers’ compensation investigation, their client has saved more than $300,000 on one claim, making it one of the largest, single-impact cases in the client’s history.

A former Michigan resident had been receiving workers’ compensation payments since 1990 for an injury he allegedly obtained while working.  The client received information that the claimant, who now resides overseas, could potentially be working outside of his restrictions and receiving additional payment. 

G4S was contacted to investigate and determine whether or not the claimant was being compensated for his work.  Upon investigation, G4S discovered that a local restaurant, near the claimant’s residence, was registered in the claimant’s name. 

The Investigator visited the restaurant to begin surveillance and documented the claimant working as a restaurant manager and participating in activities that were clearly out of his restrictions including mopping the floors and loading a sack of charcoal into a barbecue.  G4S was able to confirm and document that the claimant was, in fact, working, which contradicted his 21-year old workers’ compensation claim.

The evidence was reviewed from G4S’ investigation, and the case was settled, saving G4S’ client more than $300,000.

“Whether in the U.S. or internationally, G4S conducts superior investigations and delivers the highest standards of excellence to our customers across all manners of the investigation,” said Michael J. Malone, President, G4S Compliance & Investigations.  “We are proud to provide concrete evidence to support claim mitigation and save our client hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent claim payments.”
