Workplace Violence

With today's socio-economic pressures affecting much of the workforce, organizations are at risk for more liabilities and legal issues concerning workplace violence than ever before. Our division specializes in helping clients take the necessary steps to reduce risk and increase resilience. While no one likes to believe workplace violence issues could occur at their organization, the fact is that workplace violence incidents can happen anywhere. Workplace violence affects an organization's personnel safety, morale, productivity and bottom line, and it is imperative that workplace violence prevention programs, policies and procedures are prepared to mitigate and respond to this risk.

Our staff leads the development of workplace violence prevention programs for our clients, in conjunction with threat assessment experts and other consulting and investigations team members who specialize in training, site assessments, policy and procedure development and direct intervention.

Working in concert, these consulting and investigations professionals provide comprehensive workplace violence prevention and training programs customized to each client's unique circumstances.  We can assist clients with individual program elements, like employee training, or we can help build entire programs from the ground up, including the following:

  • appropriate review and training
  • human resources pre-employment considerations and employee evaluations
  • building policies and procedures
  • threat/risk assessments

Training is one of the most important elements of any workplace violence prevention or active shooter response program – so critical in fact that many clients start with training and build out other program elements as time and budget allow. Our consulting and investigations team members are in demand worldwide to present critical training for first responders, threat assessment teams and employees.

Run/Hide/Fight – Surviving an Active Shooter Event is an example of the type of training that our consulting and investigations professionals deliver for clients. We custom-design the training to address the specific needs of the client organization. 

polygraph

Polygraph Testing

Selecting a qualified examiner can be a difficult process, considering what is sometimes at stake. We understand the importance of this decision, so we will never use an inexperienced examiner or one which uses a technique not validated by scientific research. If done correctly, polygraph on average is 90 to 95% accurate. We offer only true polygraph services. Do not be fooled by offers of voice stress analysis (VSA), which the U.S. Government has determined to be unreliable.

How to set up a polygraph exam

The process is simple... you tell us where you would like the exam and complete the registration process. Once you decide to hire one of our examiners, we will ask you for some information - needed to conduct the exam - and for a deposit which will be applied towards the overall exam fee. Within 1 to 2 business days the examiner handling the selected area will contact you to schedule the exam at a date and time that is convenient for both of you. We guarantee you will receive a quality polygraph exam by an experienced examiner in the geographic area you selected. The examiner will work closely with the customer to design the best test questions to resolve the issue under investigation. Keep in mind that a properly conducted exam may take 1½ to 3 hours to complete. Following the exam, upon request, a written report will be provided to you at no charge.

Workman’s Comp Investigations

Workers’ Compensation Fraud costs employers billions of dollars each year. Workers comp fraud occurs when an employee claims an injury he or she does not have or exaggerates the extent of their injury in order to file a workers compensation claim. This can allow the worker to claim and receive workers compensation insurance that they are not entitled to.

Business owners, insurance agents, HR managers and others responsible for employees conduct workers comp investigations to gain a thorough understanding of how and why the injury occurred and to ensure each of the workers filing a worker’s comp claim are entitled to the compensation they receive. Thorough, complete workers comp investigations ensure that funds are paid for legitimate claims and reduces the loss of manpower and payments associated with illegitimate workers comp claims.

We provide the following services to uncover workers compensation insurance fraud:

  • Surveillance. Investigators may use audio, video, and other types of surveillance to determine whether an individual worker is really as injured as they seem.
  • Interviews and research. Workers compensation investigators may interview colleagues, friends, family, trying to find out how extensive the worker’s injuries are.
  • Background checks and traditional investigative techniques. A worker’s compensation investigator may check medical records, and other records to determine whether a worker is truly injured. They may also run background checks to see whether a worker has filed numerous compensation claims in the past or has been convicted of workers compensation fraud in the past.
  • Evidence gathering. Workers compensation investigators can gather evidence if they uncover workers compensation insurance fraud. This can help employers and businesses prosecute fraud and cut off workers compensation claims that are not legitimate.
  • Underpaid workers investigation. Workers compensation investigators can also help workers who are not getting adequate insurance money. If a company or insurance company is not paying workers comp to a genuinely injured worker, a private investigator can gather evidence about the company or insurance company in question. This can help a genuinely injured worker get their money through the court system.
