Kash M. Marzetti took a risk in 2011, and now he is paying the price. The 43-year-old Ohio man has admitted to committing Workman's comp fraud. According to WorkCompCentral, Marzetti of Columbus, was found guilty of the misdemeanor and had to pay the Bureau of Worker's Compensation $5,642 in restitution and a $50 court fee as part of his sentence.
The BWC began investigating Marzetti after a claims service specialist suspected he may have been working while also collecting benefits. As it was discovered, Marzetti continued to work in the same or similar fashion as he did when he became injured. In addition to performing inspections, he also provided estimates for repair work and new construction, worked as a laborer, supervised pool construction sites and other duties, all while collecting injured workers' benefits.
