A. The services of a private investigation firm can be beneficial to literally all employees of a dealership. For example, the parts department and the Service Manager may need to protect the dealership from possible frauds or thefts be it aftermarket parts, VIN manipulations or vehicle thefts. A reputable private investigation firm will have experts who can assist in these areas. However, the upcoming webinar will specifically deal with attendance management issues and fraudulent WSIB claims. As these issues cover the entire organization and its employees, the presentation would be beneficial for the General Manager, Human Resources, Finance, Health & Safety Coordinator, or anyone in a managerial or supervisory role.
Q. What areas will you addressing specifically?
A. Small businesses are beginning to realize that employee related fraud is detrimental to performance, customer service, outputs and the economic health of a company. Employee (or workplace) fraud comes in many forms, including: flagrant absenteeism; economic fraud; workplace harassment and/or violence; and lost productivity due to substance abuse. Moreover, the most difficult workplace fraud for an employer to address is fraudulent WSIB claims. The upcoming webinar will provide awareness and education regarding the following topics: how to reduce financial and manpower costs; PIPEDA considerations; fraudulent red flags; and the appropriate procedures to following in the case of an employee who is taking advantage of the system.
