The Challenge for Business
Remote work has become an increasingly popular option in recent years, but it has yet to become a primary employment model. Indeed, most companies still rely on operational models that require employees to be on-site each day. As a result, relatively few companies were prepared to transition to remote work when Covid-19 began to spread earlier this year. In many instances, those businesses rushed to accommodate work-from-home options for their workers.
Unfortunately, that speedy response had one major drawback for some employers who had little experience with supervising remote workers. According to recent reports, some of those employers have struggled to verify that their work-from-home employees are actually doing the jobs they are being paid to do. Of course, that raises an obvious question: if your company lacks experience managing remote workers, how exactly do you get the verification you need to ensure that your employees are not simply taking advantage of the situation?
Private Investigation in New York City Can Help
Across the U.S., companies have been turning to private investigators to help verify remote workers’ activities. In states like Arizona, there are private detective services discovering that some remote workers have been simply treating their work-at-home opportunities as unapproved vacations. By some media accounts, some of those employees have spent their paid work hours engaged in everything from boating and golfing to interoffice affairs.
For employers who suspect that their remote workers may be skipping work to enjoy other activities during the pandemic, the solution may be as simple as hiring a detective to conduct a private investigation in New York City. A competent private investigator can follow up on your suspicions, conduct surveillance, and get the answers and evidence you need to give you peace of mind. And if your employees are defrauding you by skipping out on work, you will have the evidence needed to justify a termination of employment.
