BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
There’s nothing comical about fraud, unless one is a postal worker claiming a disability all the while carrying and selling boxes of comic books at notoriously well-attended and festive comic con conventions.
A 60-year-old postal worker in New Hampshire pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to making false statements to obtain disability benefits after investigators observed him repeatedly moving heavy boxes of comics at a comic con event, despite claims that work-related injuries to his neck, back and arm prevented him from working since 2010, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.
Kenneth Dunn, of Nashua, New Hampshire, was required to report all employment for which he received a salary, wage or payment of any kind in annual reports submitted to the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workers’ Compensation Program, the newspaper reported. He was also required to provide documentation from a medical doctor to demonstrate his or her continued eligibility for the benefits and report any improvements to his or her physical condition.
Mr. Dunn failed to report the income to the federal government’s workers comp program and continued to claim he was not able to work in any capacity, a double whammy for the U.S. Attorney’s Office indictment.
One might say he’s another sort of bouncer: from prison guard to workers compensation recipient to night club security to possible inmate.
