Unfortunately, employee investigations are necessary when the employer suspects that there is an issue. Whilst it would be life affirming if everyone that applied for or worked in a job never told a lie, “borrowed” stock or money from the firm and didn’t cause a colleague distress, this would also mean ignoring that there are very real problems that must to addressed. Employee investigations can’t fall prey to idealism or heartstring pulling and clouded judgement.

  • False sick leave:

Is someone on your team so incredibly unlucky that their health fails regularly or conveniently to allow long weekends?

Why won’t they visit their G.P?

Are they ill or enjoying time off fully paid until the SSP runs out?

Is the time they’re taking off disproportionate to their malady?


  • False compensation claims:

Opportunity and temptation proves too hard to resist for some people. X Three Surveillance Ltd.’s Stockport employee investigation operatives have worked on several cases. We establish, with inadmissible proof, whether a claim is false, embellished or genuine.


  • Theft investigations:

Have your employees reported money or personal belongings as missing?

Is the petty cash inexplicably not balancing?

Is a till operator suddenly making a rash of mistakes that could be training issues related but you feel there is an ulterior motive for their “errors?”

Are stocks of resources disappearing suspiciously quickly?

Is someone accusing another employee to deflect attention from themselves?


  • Moonlighting:

Is an employee working elsewhere as they work for you?

Are they on sick leave from your company but you’ve received reports that they have been seen working elsewhere?

Has someone taken the step of registering themselves as self employed for extra work outside your firm?

Are the payroll department in your company working without being told of a change in circumstances which affects how the employee’s tax/national insurance works?


  • Industrial Espionage:

This isn’t limited to the movies and books. It’s a real problem. MI5 has confirmed a UK case that lost one firm a staggering £800m.

Is information about contracts, deals, leads generation and stock being leaked to a rival?

How did a competitor take possession of your sensitive company meeting notes?

How did the press know that an incident occurred in the work environment?

How can a competitor significantly undercut your prices, and so accurately?


  • Suspicions about staff:

Cutting edge GPS technology vehicle tracking tools are frequently used to follow the activities of field based staff members who might be enjoying more time at home than working. Text alerts related to specific area addresses can be set up.


  • Substance abuse;

The Institute of Alcohol Studies found that:

Alcohol alone costs the UK £7.3billion per annum in productivity.

15% of workers confessed to being drunk at work.

Employees, particularly office workers, are more likely to drink during the week.

They also drink in larger quantities and increasingly above healthy levels, far more than the unemployed or retired.
