V aughan Investigations Inc. specializes in Employee Dishonesty cases - investigating internal acts of theft, fraud and other criminal or dishonest activity within the workplace.
Investigators gather information and evidence, discreetly conduct surveillance of suspect employees, make apprehensions when appropriate, and follow through with interviews to capture evidence in support of a suspect employee’s termination and/or receipt
of criminal charges.
Vaughan understands the associated legalities/liabilities and adheres to strict policy and procedures when dealing with suspect employees, including the challenges of working within the confines of a collective agreement/union environment.
Vaughan Investigators, being prompt critical thinkers, will suggest the most effective course of action in solving employee dishonesty issues.
Vaughan possesses the experience to advise clients on the merits and potiential disadvantages of pursuing a criminal prosecution. Frequently, owners/managers are highly motivated to proceed with criminal charges; however this is not always the most prudent course of action. Criminal prosecutions can often be a protracted and ultimately unsatisfying process, and the level of evidential proof that is required must meet a higher standard than that required in purely civil proceedings (including the adequate support of employee termination). Ultimately, this decision rests with the client and Vaughan can provide input that results in a fully informed decision.
