The Workers’ Compensation Investigations Program Chief is responsible for the day to day operations of a small team of field investigators, who investigate both claimant insurance fraud and employers who fail to properly insure their businesses. In addition to screening complaints and assigning them for investigation, the Chief also performs all the functions of a field investigator. This includes visiting job sites and workplaces, conducting interviews and surveillance, taking witness statements and compiling investigative files. The job requires regular travel in a personal vehicle.
The job also requires managing interactions with employers and individuals who may be non-compliant or confrontational. The ideal candidate will have the ability to engage professionally with the general public, conduct thorough investigations, and present their findings and conclusions in clearly written investigative reports. The program chief will be able to defend their conclusions and provide sworn testimony at administrative hearings. The work is performed independently, under the supervision of the Workers’ Compensation Program Manager and the Director of Workers’ Compensation.
