A dishonest act in the workplace can have a crushing effect on your organisation. If you’re worried that someone is tampering with your assets or information, you need to discover the source and defuse the situation.
For your business to succeed, you need to be able to trust your employees. And if a misdeed goes unnoticed or unchecked in the workplace, the situation can escalate and lead to overwhelmingly negative consequences. In extreme cases, it could even lead to company closure.
It takes a brave business to accept there may be a problem. Launching a commercial investigation only demonstrates your integrity and commitment to improve.
Our confidential commercial investigation services cover both internal and external enquiries. Your comprehensive investigation report will include powerful supporting evidence such as:
- Incriminating documents
- Fact-finding statements
I’m concerned that someone has been trading confidential information, working with a competing business, diverting business opportunities or using unethical business practices.
Working closely with client representatives, appointed solicitors, auditors and professional government bodies, we will gather, analyse and preserve all aspects of direct and circumstantial evidence to determine whether a breach has occurred. If necessary, we can even stand as witness for criminal or civil proceedings in court.
I have a suspicion that another employee has been soliciting or receiving kickbacks, or is committing fraud.
Misdeeds like these nearly always leave traces of evidence. We will delve deep into financial transactions and reports to help you tackle any allegations of misconduct, fraud, bribery or corruption, sharing the process with you so you can prevent a similar situation from happening again.
I think someone is sabotaging our operations from the inside.
It can be incredibly disheartening if you suspect a current or previous employee is knowingly sabotaging your business. But if operations are disrupted, your output will be affected, and eventually you’ll be in even bigger trouble. Our investigations will help you put a stop to sabotage.
There have been false allegations about another employee in my business.
If you suspect an employee has been making false allegations in the workplace, it’s worth investigating the facts before you go to the police. We will tread carefully to carry out a thorough investigation that provides indisputable evidence, which you can then use in a criminal case.
