Suspicious Sick Leave


Suspicious staff sick leave led to a surveillance-undertaking operation

Background

The investigations team undertook work acting for a UK plc.  One of the company’s senior members of staff had been on sick leave due to medical conditions. 

Issue

Concerns had been raised and we were called in to investigate the sincerity of the leave.

Outcome

The investigations team undertook surveillance upon the member of staff for several days.  From the initial evidence that the team obtained, they decided to undertake additional intelligence-gathering investigations.  

The result of the investigation identified that person in question had been working for a new company as a shadow director and they subsequently had their employment terminated, losing all their employment rights and privileges
