Corporate / Workplace investigations

Corporate fraud and theft cost Canadian companies millions of dollars every year. In addition, financial losses, workplace theft and fraud also have a hidden cost in time spent conducting internal investigations, dealing with regulatory and law enforcement authorities, and repairing damage to the company’s reputation and credibility.

Suspicious or unethical behaviour can occur in any organisation and most employers are not equipped to conduct workplace investigations which could have serious or even criminal implications.

Platinum Investigation can discreetly uncover facts to help organisations make sound, effective choices. With the use of covert and physical surveillance we will provide factual and reliable documentation that can be used to support management actions.

We use a variety of methods to determine whether fraud or theft has occurred, identify the perpetrator, located missing funds and possible ways to recover them. We can recommend ways to protect from further issues and assist in reviewing policies to prevent further incidents.

Workerplace safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)

When an individual fraudulently claims for WSIB or exaggerates the extent of their injury there can be long term cost implications for the organisation. Reduced productivity, time away from the workplace, increased premiums for the employers are just some of the issues faced.

Platinum Investigation insurance fraud investigators are trained to unobtrusively investigate and collect valuable information you need about suspicious claims and the individuals who may be abusing the system.

Investigators will conduct surveillance at the most suitable and appropriate day and time including early morning, evenings and weekends, depending on the usual habits of the individual.
