A Waterbury woman was charged with illegally collecting $22,000 in Workers’ Compensation benefits Friday.

51-year-old Rosaura Rodriguez of 161 Prospect Street was collecting money for lost income while continuing to work her second job.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, she reported suffering from a work related injury in June 2015 when employed as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Saint Mary’s Hospital. By collecting workers’ compensation, Rodriquez would be unable work as a CNA and at her second job as a live in caretaker.

Rodriquez continued to work at her second job.

Rodriguez was released on a promise to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on September 13. The case will be prosecuted by the Workers’ Compensation Fraud Control Unit.
