Do you know Who your workers are?

It used to be that potential clients would call us up to help them discover what their employees did during work hours. It would make very interesting reading if I were to put some of these stories into a book. For instance, we conducted surveillance on one senior employee a couple of years ago and discovered that he spent approx. 10 hours a day going around visiting women who appeared to be his mistresses. It was actually a full time job for him. Needless to say, once we brought back the video evidence to the client, he lost his “full time” job – and the company vehicle.

I was watching “Cavuto’s World” on Fox television last night and Neil Cavuto was speaking about a Bill that might be passed in Michigan that would fine hotel and restaurant owners very heavily for hiring illegal workers. A gentleman from the hospitality industry was complaining that this was a Federal responsibility and should not be determined by the State. Mr. Cavuto was quick to point out that the Federal Government had “dropped the ball” on this and most likely it would be resolved at the State level in the future.

This to me is just another example of why it is a good business practice to know who is working for you. Every company should be conducting background checks. There have been countless cases where people have been hurt and killed by a company employee and the company gets sued for millions of dollars when it transpires that the employee had previous convictions for the same thing.

As an employer it is very important to know where your employees are, but before you ask that, you should be asking yourself; “do I really know Who my employees are?”
