Employer fraud is a major problem for workers' compensation programs. Today's post was shared by WCBlog and comes from www.pressconnects.com


The Tioga County Sheriffs Office, in cooperation with the New York State Workers Compensation Board, charged a 37-year-old Rochester man Thursday with 26 felony counts of offering a false instrument for filing.

Jason M. Bonsignore, of Edgemere Drive, was also charged with four counts each of failure to secure compensation for employees and fraudulent practice, also felonies under the New York State Workers Compensation Law.

The charges are the result of an investigation of Bonsignores business, Champion Speedway on Old Narrows Road in the Town of Owego.

Bonsignore was arraigned in the Town of Owego Court in front of Justice John Schumacher and released on his own recognizance.
