Titan Investigation’s employee investigations team will produce a bespoke investigation plan based around your needs, objectives and budget.
Is your business suffering due to habitual employee absenteeism?
Absenteeism is an employee’s intentional or habitual absence from the workplace. Most companies and employers will expect workers to miss a certain number of workdays each year through illness and other external factors, but excessive absences can equate to decreased productivity and can have a major effect on company finances, and morale.
Common causes for employee absenteeism
Employees have many reasons for their absenteeism from the work place, many will be legitimate and others less so:
- Child and Elderly Care
- Extended weekend or family holiday (whilst being paid).
- Moonlighting (working elsewhere).
- Setting up a business.
- Working for a business competitor.
- Poor Management or Leadership.
- Stress or Depression.
- Bullying in the workplace.
- Compensation award for an injury.
Compensation claims are one more serious forms of employee absenteeism and can incorporate the offence of fraud, which we’re finding more and more common. This is where an employee falsely reports an accident with the intention of then claiming compensation, or suffers a genuine injury but then exaggerates the symptoms with the intention of increasing the value of their claim.
Lawful Employee Investigations
Our clients have usually undertaken an internal investigation and commenced their “Unacceptable Absenteeism” procedure involving action plans and meetings with supervisors and other departments such as HR and Occupational Health. If this hasn’t been initiated, then Titan’s employee absenteeism team are able to offer assistance and guide you through this process.
Titan only employs lawful evidence gathering techniques which are non-intrusive and don’t infringe on Human Rights, such as the right to private life and a fair trial. We’ve employed and refined these tactics in accordance with the Law since 1997 and base our investigations around proportionality and necessity.
