Employee Time Theft



Employees may be unaware that they are inadvertently committing time theft through their actions in the workplace. Time costs money, so ensuring your workforce is not wasting yours is an integral part of your day-to-day operations.

What is Employee Time Theft?

From regularly turning up late to not working to the best of their ability, employers face increasing difficulties monitoring the productivity of their workforce. Time theft can include;
  • Clocking in/out early – sometimes employees can enlist colleagues to clock in or out for them. On the system, it may look like they are working during their allotted times, but, they may have left or arrived hours after they were supposed to start/end working.
  • Decreased productivity – employees that are required to work alone for long periods of time may not be working to the best of the ability when they are not being monitored.
  • Long lunches/breaks – employees may be found to be taking longer breaks which can add up to a considerable amount of time over several weeks.
  • Personal admin – are employees spending too much of their day carrying out personal calls, internet usage, or social media?
Our private investigators will help you pinpoint the causes of time theft in your workplace. Through various surveillance or undercover worker options, we can provide you with a detailed report of the instances of time theft within your work environment.
Though time theft is difficult to define, our private investigators have experienced many different scenarios and are trained to detect situations where employee’s actions are costing company time and productivity.
