No company, large or small, is immune from false workplace sickness and workplace theft.
Fantasy sickness is on the rise. Employers face a challenging time to make a profit in an ever demanding world. Unfortunately business priorities are not always viewed in the same way by employees, who will stop at nothing to gain an advantage over their employer.
Some employee’s will take a period of ‘sick leave’ and are genuine cases. However, others have moved into an environment where they will prey on their employers lack of understanding within this area, thinking that they can take weeks, even months off on full pay at their employer’s expense. Whether they have been genuinely injured and amplify their injury, or just completely invent an injury, this behaviour can cost employers thousands of pounds, and in some cases cause permanent harm to the company.
NTF Investigations are well versed in dealing with workplace sickness and our private investigators can discuss your concerns.
Theft from the workplace
The number of High Court cases relating to the theft of confidential company information more than doubled from 2010 to 2012.
Research shows that data theft is costing small UK companies millions of pounds, with the average legal costs alone at around £30,000.
Very few will actually employ a private investigator, because investigating theft is complex. Faced with challenging economical times, however, businesses are less able to sustain losses and maintain business as usual, making workplace investigations increasingly more important.
