CT Man Charged With Workers' Compensation Fraud

Hartford, CT (CompNewsNetwork) - Donald Taber, age 43, of 772 Goodwin Avenue, East Hartford, was arrested today on a warrant charging him with one count of Worker's Compensation Fraud, a felony carrying a maximum prison term of twenty years.
According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Mr. Taber claimed to have suffered a work-related injury on January 13, 2006, while employed as a tractor trailer driver for United Steel Incorporated of East Hartford.
During the period from January 13, 2006 to September 11, 2006, Mr. Taber received temporary total disability benefits totaling $9,540.37, the warrant states.
Investigation and surveillance of Mr. Tabor's activities during the period he was receiving benefits revealed that he was employed as a part-time instructor at the New England Tractor Trailer Training School in Somers, according to the warrant.
The warrant states that Mr. Taber failed to disclose that he was employed during the period he was receiving disability benefits. Failure to do so was in violation of his obligation under the Workers' Compensation Code to disclose all material facts concerning his workers' compensation claim, the warrant states.
The charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
Mr. Taber was released on a written promise to appear and will be arraigned in Hartford Superior Court at G.A. No. 14 on April 2, 2009.
