It’s true: Managers can find comp fraud by viewing employees’ social networking Web pages.
Dollar Tree in Virginia suspected an employee was abusing workers’ comp. She’d received more than $100,000 over a year and a half for back problems.
The employee posted on her MySpace page that she had a side job taking photos at a wedding.
Dollar Tree representatives saw her lugging camera equipment and picking up children at the event, showing no signs of back pain.
The retailer won its appeal of her case.
