The Investigators Group Inc. was established in Toronto in 1995. We serve the legal, insurance and corporate communities as well as individuals through our civil and executive services. Our firm is, and all of our investigators are, customer services oriented.
We excel in:
Assisting employers in investigation workplace harassment, bullying and violence in the workplace.
Uniformed and non-uniformed security guards for all retail, corporate, warehouse, and executive requirements.
Through our affiliate company Pre-Check, we conduct background investigations and reference checks. A background investigation generally involves determining whether an applicant may be unqualified for a position due to a record of criminal conviction, motor vehicle violations, poor credit history, or misrepresentation regarding education or work history. Background investigations are a means to verify information about potential hires or business associates using third-party sources.
A licensed private investigator is trained in investigative techniques and must understand the procedural steps required to be followed in order for video surveillance to be admissible.
Employers can conduct surveillance using tools such as a swipe-card system, which data can be used for time-management and disciplinary purposes, or cameras.
I have seen first-hand how fraud can be harmful to a company’s reputation and brand. Engaging in a fraud investigation is difficult and can erode the trust and morale of employees and raise questions and concerns to your outside relationships, customers, suppliers and even prospective employees. That is why before engaging in any investigation, I will ensure that I explain to the client the investigation process, the potential scope and risks, and care is taken in planning the execution and timing of any investigation.
