Feigning Sickness / Fraud by Faked Sickness
Unjustified continuation of payment to workers written off sick is fraud. In those cases the employee pretends to be unable to work due to some sickness, often not giving further details.
This way the employee does not only gain financial advantages but also gets additional time off. Often this extra time is used to do some (illicit) business on the side or undeclared work.
Frequently, the off sick note is also used to earn some additional money as freelancer. Fraud by faked sickness is also committed in order to take care of private matters or to help family or friends with their issues without using vacation days.
The damage to the companies affected is huge and hits small and medium-sized businesses particularly hard. Our detective-agency clarifies the daily routine of the employee on sick-leave by discreet surveillance and investigations.
We secure evidence which will stand up in court backed by significant photos and visual material. Our detectives will also testify as witnesses in court.
We’re looking forward to a first conversation with you!
