Taking a sick day when not sick can border on fraud.  While many employees call in “sick”  once or twice a year at most –even for “mental health reasons,” others abuse the system by staying sick for weeks, recuperating at sporting matches, on cruises, or while making home improvements.

Peter M. Vito & Associates, Inc. can conduct surveillance and provide reports on cases where the employee’s sick claim seems  “shady.” While employees often feel “entitled” to this time off, this isn’t a view shared at the top of the corporate ladder.

When misconduct in the workplace is alleged, the importance of a prompt, thorough and non-biased factual assessment cannot be overstated.  Aggrieved workers want to be heard.  Employers want – and are legally required – to respond to workplace concerns appropriately and fairly.  By engaging an independent outside investigator and ensuring a thorough, non-biased assessment of the facts, employers and their workers can continue to focus on the success of their business while ensuring that workplace concerns are addressed and resolved appropriately.

Police misconduct refers to illegal or inappropriate action taken by an officer. It can involve a violation of state law, federal law, or police department rules and regulations.  But the range of actions that constitute misconduct is much broader, including filing false reports, unlawfully destroying property, and misusing or stealing of seized property, money, or drugs. Misconduct can also include off-duty violence or unlawful acts.

Peter M. Vito Invesitagors & Associates, Inc., has experience on both sides of the aisle, and can conduct a thorough investigation of both sides of an incident and provide a third-party, unbiased assessment of the case.

Our years of investigations have determined that some employees will steal just about anything. We have identified employees using heavy equipment for personal use. Stealing materials to make a lane or street on their personal property. Purchase new machinery for their own use. We have investigated employees substituting their old personal machinery with new machinery paid for by a municipality. They have manipulated inventory. Stolen departmental funds and materials. Awarded bids to friends and family. Approved vendor contracts without authorization and submitted falsified invoices for payment.

The stealing of time while at work is pervasive especially within municipalities. Our investigations have uncovered employees working multiple jobs while “on the clock” for the municipality, hunting, having extracurricular affairs in governmental vehicles during work hours or sitting at a bar drinking while on the job.
