Cleveland Man Receives Workers’ Comp Fraud Sentence

November 5, 2004

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) announced a Cuyahoga County man, Joseph Olasky, has been indicted for workers’ compensation fraud. It is estimated that Olasky defrauded BWC of $20,608.85.

BWC special investigation unit (SIU), was alerted of possible fraud when he reportedly mentioned to his doctor that he had been working. The SIU was able to confirm that Olasky was working for Transportation Unlimited as a truck driver while receiving workers’ comp benefits.

Olasky was injured on the job in February 2001. He suffered injuries to both legs and right elbow while working for Clearvue Glass Company.

BWC awarded temporary total disability benefits and living maintenance for his injury.
