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”.

Worker fakes COVID-19 doctor note


An unnamed Fortune 50 company had to pay upwards of $100,000 after having to close its Atlanta offices after one of its workers faked a COVID-19 diagnosis.

Santwon Antonio Davis, a three-time felon, was arrested by the FBI after defrauding his employer with a phony medical excuse letter, according to a press statement issued Thursday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

The letter prompted his employer to stop business and sanitize the workplace, still paying other workers who were forced to stay home in quarantine, according to the press statement.

Apparently, it was Mr. Davis who admitted he had been up to no good, according to investigators.

As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which accessed his criminal record, he had been out of prison for just over a year. Since 2006, Mr. Davis has served three prison stints, totaling nearly 18 months in custody, according to Georgia Department of Corrections records, which revealed convictions of theft by taking, theft by receiving, criminal trespassing and criminal damage to property.
