Employee Time Abuse

Leave or time off programs like Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Workers' Compensation, and Disability need to be enforced to ensure they are utilized only for their intended purpose. Our private investigators will help you reinforce the boundaries of these programs. The cost of employee time abuse can be quite high. It does not include indirect costs such as overtime pay for other employees, hiring temps, missed deadlines, lost sales, sinking morale and lower productivity. Indirect costs can add up to 25 percent to the direct costs, according to Employee Benefit News and HR News.



Internal Employee Theft

Employees have access to virtually all of your assets and information - a business situation ripe for theft in today's world. Access to cash, inventory, raw materials, information, and even time-off, is easy to achieve often with just the click of a button. Unfortunately, that empowerment may entice a few to cross the line. Our corporate employee theft investigators are trained and experienced to identify the source of problems in the workplace. Bank fraud is also an area of company theft that we investigate.

Internal Theft

From a simple instance of theft, the annual loss can spiral out of control.


Employee Misconduct

Good employees make your company successful, but just one bad apple can cause costly problems in your business. For employee investigations involving wrongdoing, misbehavior, or simply bad behavior, PHENIX has the experience to solve the employee issue. We employ a process that is simple and highly effective with our trained corporate private investigators. Our process works in both union and non-union facilities. Private investigators avoid litigation costs and reduce the opportunity for future misconduct or theft. Most importantly - we get your good employees back to work.



Non-Compete Contract Violations

Employee non-compete violations are more effectively enforced when it involves any misuse of information or intentional acts by employees that negatively impact your business. These are commonly labeled a "non-disclosure breach" agreements and can be very enforceable. PHENIX can perform surveillance to gather relevant evidence of employee activities and to determine if they are soliciting and meeting any customers, violating their "non-compete".
