In June, Shareholder, M. Allison Hunnicutt and, Of Counsel, Kim L. McCall spoke at the 22nd Annual Workers’ Compensation Claims Professional (WCCP) Association Claims Management & Leadership Conference in Naples, Florida. Ms. Hunnicutt and Ms. McCall spoke on the topic of Workers’ Compensation Fraud. In their interactive workshop, the duo walked participants through the steps of identifying the ‘red flags’ of potential fraud, then guided the employers, adjusters and HR personnel on how to properly assert the fraud defense and coordinate with the DFS Fraud Investigation Unit and the State Attorney’s office to initiate the investigation and arrest of workers’ compensation claimants who commit fraud. The workshop was well attended and the team has been asked to present again in 2014 by the Executive Director of the WCCP.
