I have an injured employee who is collecting TTD and is working at another job. Is this fraud?

It depends on a number of factors. Merely collecting TTD and working at another job, does not in and of itself, constitute fraud. One of the criminal elements of fraud is a misrepresentation of a material fact (a lie) in order to obtain a benefit. If a claims adjuster, medical provider or an employer asked the injured employee if he or she is working and the employee denies it, then there could be a violation of Missouri′s workers′ compensation statute.
