Workplace Insurance Fraud Investigation (WSIB Fraud)
The Platinum Investigation insurance fraud investigators are trained to unobtrusively investigate and collect the valuable information you need about suspicious claims and the individuals who may be abusing the system.
Corporate fraud and theft cost Canadian companies millions of dollars every year. In addition to financial losses, workplace theft also robs companies of time spent conducting internal investigations and dealing with regulatory and law enforcement authorities, repairing damage to the company’s reputation and credibility. During workplace fraud investigations, we use a variety of methods to determine whether a fraud or theft has been committed and identify the perpetrator and the method used to commit the theft. We can also locate the missing funds and identify any possible ways to recover them. Platinum Investigation can also recommend ways to protect your corporation from workplace theft as well as review internal policies to prevent further incidents.
Employee Background Checks
Hiring the wrong employee wastes valuable resources, time and money, and could ultimately hurt your company. Protect yourself and your business from criminal or negligent employees with Platinum Investigation’s employee background checks. Platinum Investigation offers efficient, cost-effective solutions for pre-employment screening. Our employment check investigates all facets of a prospective employee’s work history, including absenteeism, reasons for termination and any history of workplace substance abuse or harassment. Pre-employment testing also includes a criminal background check, financial history and education verification.
Workplace Violence Investigation
Violence in the workplace is a growing concern in Canada and can take the form of written or verbal threats, physical assault, verbal abuse or threatening actions and can lead to reputation-damaging criminal charges or civil lawsuits.
