Yesterday, our star “None” alerted us to a rather inappropriate workcover related tweet. Joke or no joke, the guy frankly tweets or talks about committing WorkCover fraud…
Some see workcover as a free ticket and early retirement
— Sean Madden (@BigSeanMadden) April 15, 2012
Just in case the original tweet would be deleted, here is a snapshot:
In this tweet, the dude appears to openly talks about committing WorkCover fraud by stating that he “should have gone into work and claimed he did it there” – how SICK! And, he clearly sees WorkCover as being in receipt of “early retirement”, given that he sends it to #earlyretirement! How SICK!
And it is people like “SeanMadden” who are responsible for genuinely injured workers being treated like criminals and fraudsters; and it is people like “SeanMadden” who are responsible for falsely instilling the MYTH that workcover victims are on a “paid holiday”, “early retirement” or “milking the system”.
People like “SeanMadden” ought to be deeply ashamed of themselves and ought to be punished for alleging to commit workcover fraud. But that’s just our seriously injured opinion
