Our Legal Services group is responsible for prosecuting (on behalf of SIRA) individuals, employers, companies, organisations and others who are alleged to have committed fraud.
Prosecutions commence under appropriate workers compensation legislation and/or the Crimes Act 1900 in accordance with our compliance policy and prosecution guidelines.
Allegations of fraud may be ultimately prosecuted, or a caution may be issued. Methods of civil debt recovery may be pursued to recoup overpayments and money received fraudulently.
If you suspect fraud, there are several ways to report it.
