About Employee Investigators
The Requirement For EI
EI or Employee Investigations is an area which has grown in the past 10 years from about 200 Employee Investigators in 2002 to over 3000 in 2012.
Employee Investigations has become one of the definitive roles within the security industry and also one of the most lucrative for those employed as Employee Investigators.
On average an Employee Investigator is paid almost 60% higher than a counterpart conducting store detective duties in a retail environment.
There is a clear need and demand for Employee Investigators in the UK
and also in almost every country in the world. It is the case that Employee Investigators are so few and far between that Private investigators
commonly fill this role
Role of an Employee Investigator
The following tasks make up most of an EI's workload
1. .Identify Staff members susceptible to blackmail
2. .Identify dishonest appropriation of property in the work place.
4. .Company security policy adjustment programs
5. .Conspiring parties within the establishment
6. .Information gathering exercise
7. .Detailed report writing (interim and full)
8. .Computer misuse
9. .Counter espionage
10. .Staff Accident investigation
11. .Staff sickness investigation.
Surveillance Outside The Workplace
Employers can legally ask EI’s to conduct surveillance on staff outside the workplace. The EI's may use simple methods such as following an employee, or they may mount more high tech operations.
This sounds implausible but it does occur. Surveillance of staff, such as video recording outside work is accepted in some situations.
There’s one common example. An employer may hire a EI because of allegations that a member of staff who claims to be sick is lying. The EI follows the staff member and records on camera anything that suggests fitness rather than poor health.
Employment tribunals tend to accept such evidence without objection.
• As stated above, an employer does have a right to protect a business. This is usually the reason given for recruiting a Employee Investigator.
• Employees, of course, have a right to privacy under the Data Protection Act. They can also challenge the methods and findings of a Employee Investigator if these fail to follow legal criteria. A Employee Investigator cannot, for example, bully a staff member into admitting wrongdoing.
• Nonetheless, EI services in business can save money, and are here to stay.
