Man must repay $2,000+ to the Ohio BWC

ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio -- A St. Clairsville man has pleaded guilty to fraud after investigators with the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation found he was submitting false paperwork in order to receive workplace injury benefits.

The Ohio BWC received an internal allegation from a claims service specialist that Charles Oberdick wasn't performing job searches and was submitting falsified job search forms in order to continue receiving benefits. He pleaded guilty to one count of workers' compensation fraud on Friday.

Oberdick was receiving non-working wage loss, which is paid to injured workers unable to find suitable employment. The investigation showed Oberdick knowingly misrepresented the majority of his job searches. As a result, the BWC paid benefits to Oberdick he was not entitled to receive.

Oberdick will have a suspended sentence of 90 days in jail under the conditions that he pay court costs and restitution of more than $2,000.
