Employee Sickness Fraud - Absenteeism

At DNR we understand that consideration should be given to those employees who are absent reportedly "sick", whether it is short term or long term absenteeism. However, do they set a frequent pattern of absence, or is there a lack of physical symptoms? Experience has shown that these individuals are quite often malingering or working elsewhere.

Problem:

“An employee has been sick for a long time and you are unsure of when they will return. You are not convinced of the validity of their absence. What can you do and how can you combat your business being affected by this”

Solution:

DNR Solutions private detectives will undertake discreet surveillance. In most cases an employee confronted with video evidence of them out and about, or working for another company during periods of alleged sickness, will be sufficient to prevent further fraud. This will also act as a deterrent to other employees contemplating the same course of action.

All the video evidence DNR provide in these cases can be used during any disciplinary proceedings and has been in Northern Ireland on a number of cases.
