On January 28, a Houston-based security guard company was convicted of fraud and ordered by a Travis County District Court judge to pay over $50K in restitution.  Between May 28, 2005 and April 1, 2013, HHDP Security made misrepresentations about the payroll and operations of its business and a related company, Houston Harris Division Patrol, Inc.  Workers’ compensation insurance premiums are based, in part, on a company’s payroll and the type of work the company performs, so an employer who misrepresents its payroll and operations may receive a lower premium, thus gaining an unfair and unwarranted advantage over its competitors.

The Division of Workers’ Compensation’s prosecution unit obtained the indictment.  The Division urges individuals suspecting workers’ compensation fraud to report it by calling 1-844-FRAUD99 (1-844-372-8399).
