A Batavia tree trimmer has to pay nearly $50,000 after investigators secretly videotaped him working while he was collecting workers’ comp, according to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Josh Cutler got in trouble after somebody tipped off the BWC that he was working for a tree trimming operation while collecting disability for an injury at another trimming business, the state said. The state says it loses about $400 million a year in workers’ comp fraud and the BWC has a special investigation staff of 122 trying to flush it out. Most of the investigations start with tips.
