Remote Employee Investigations

REMOTE EMPLOYEE INVESTIGATIONSWhile remote employment has been a longstanding option for many companies, the COVID-19 pandemic substantially increased its implementation. This newfound flexibility has given rise to a surge in Remote Employee investigations, accompanied by a rise in instances of potential misuse of the system by employees. The transition to this evolving work paradigm can sometimes result in occasional errors, often attributed to the learning curve associated with remote work. However, there are cases where employees intentionally exploit the remote work environment for personal gain. Irrespective of the work arrangement, business challenges and issues remain inevitable. When a business detects or suspects misconduct, the appropriate course of action should be determined by the nature and severity of the issue. It is crucial to evaluate whether the situation necessitates external intervention, such as engaging a private investigator, or if it can be effectively resolved through internal protocols.
