Moonlighting Investigation

While moonlighting for some people is simply a good way for a person to increase their earning potential and provide for their family, for others it goes to another level.

Not only do they want to improve their earning potential, they do it in an unscrupulous manner to the detriment and expense of your organisation.

If and when your organisation suffers as a result, it is time to do something about it.

Signs an employee may be moonlighting

• They have hinted or let it slip that they are going into business for themselves.
• If so... are they setting up in the same business as you, are your client and supplier databases safe?
• A trusted colleague has let it slip during normal conversation; they probably know more than they are letting on.
• Maybe your employee is working for a competitor?
• Is your employee on long-term sick leave, or is their absence sporadic?
• Is your employee field based, yet no one has seen him/her for days on end?
• The employee's productivity and performance has fallen below the required standard.
• Are you receiving more requests to work from home at very short notice?
• Is your employee always tired during working hours?

The damage caused by moonlighting, whether it is by one of your most senior or most junior employees, can have a significant impact on your organisation.

Imagine if the moonlighting employee has stolen your customer database with the intention of profiting from it - this is classed as a data breach as well as intellectual property theft.

The reputational damage to your organisation could be enormous, customers may lose confidence and go elsewhere, your image could be permanently tarnished, and the financial fallout in terms of any regulatory fines issued and the unwanted exposure could affect turnover and profit.

If you suspect an employee is moonlighting, contact us to see how we can help you. Don't leave it to chance.

How can we help?

If you suspect an employee of moonlighting, it is vital that our investigation is managed in line with your own policies and procedures and we will need a copy of those to ensure we do.

Once we have discussed the case with you, and gathered all of the necessary information, we will develop an investigation plan and present you with a cost effective strategy that we feel is best suited to your circumstances.

Each case is different, therefore the scope and dynamics of the investigation will be discussed and authorised by you prior to us continuing with your instruction.

It is highly likely that we will impose surveillance on the employee suspected of moonlighting. This is vitally important because we would need to effectively demonstrate their actions are at the detriment to your organisation, including, where they are working, what hours they are working, for whom they are working and any other pertinent information that is relevant.

If we find evidence that an employee is moonlighting, you will receive irrefutable evidence corroborating it.

Once the investigation is complete, you will receive a detailed investigation report, complete with surveillance logs and irrefutable date- and time-stamped photographic and/or video evidence that is admissible in an employment tribunal or court. We can also attend court if required.

All of our investigations are conducted by highly skilled, professional investigators who operate within the parameters of the law and to strict codes of conduct. Rest assured, you are in safe hands.
