Caboolture health worker accused of $36k fraud

A FORMER Queensland Health employee has appeared briefly in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 46 work-related fraud charges.

Karma Elms, 35, of Caboolture was the subject of a Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) investigation.

The CMC alleged the former payroll employee claimed about $36,500 in fraudulent penalty and overtime payments.

Elms had been hired by Queensland Health in March 2010 to help manage the increased workload following the introduction of the department's flawed payroll system.

In a statement released in June, the CMC (now the Crime and Corruption Commission) said it would allege Elms made 46 fraudulent claims between May 2010 and August 2011.
