Workplace Investigation when dealing with Employee Fraud or misconduct


employee theftAn employer faced with an issue involving employee theft or fraud will often wish to act quickly to terminate the employee but before taking any steps, a proper workplace investigation should be conducted.  Certainly, once an employer becomes aware of the fraud, they may find that they may have a requirement to act under their insurance policy, so putting an investigation team together quickly will be essential.

The strength of the evidence will ultimately dictate whether you will be successful in terminating the employee and will help determine whether you will be able to recover any of the stolen assets.  An objective investigation, properly conducted, will help determine the strength of your case.  Investigative solutions may include searches, surveillance, monitoring, witness interviews and statement taking. 

Also important is determining whether the subject employee is in possession of the assets or any assets in which an employer may recover in a civil action. 

Private investigation firms can assist with executing civil recovery actions such as:

  • A Mareva Order - to prevent assets from being dissipated or concealed
  • A Norwich Order – to locate critical unknown information

Employers faced with such issues should consider retaining an experienced investigation team to help navigate the challenges arising from investigations of employee fraud and other misconduct.
