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”.

Eunice Ting pleaded guilty to defrauding the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workers’ Compensation Program, and will be sentenced in August, according to CBS 6 in Albany.

The DOL’s investigation found that between December 2013 and March 2020 she submitted “hundreds of materially false and fraudulent forms” to the federal comp insurance program, the station reported.
