The Joint Enforcement Task Force on Workplace Fraud was initiated by the Governor in July 2009 (Executive Order 01.01.2009.09). The Task Force was to coordinate the investigation of workplace fraud in Maryland, and the enforcement of workplace fraud statutes.
To accomplish its objectives, the Task Force recommended measures to improve prevention of workplace fraud; developed strategies for systematic investigation in industries where misclassification and workplace fraud are most prevalent; identified potential violators, and facilitated the filing of complaints against them by reaching out and educating the public.
In investigating significant cases of workplace fraud, the Task Force used the collaborative capabilities of its members; established protocols for referring investigations for assessment of potential liability; and involved local state's attorneys and agencies. Moreover, the Task Force worked cooperatively to provide assistance to victims of workplace fraud; raised public awareness that employee misclassification is illegal and causes harm; coordinated its efforts with federal agencies; and generally worked with business, organized labor, and government agencies to increase the effectiveness of the Task Force.
The Task Force last met in December 2013.
