Most of the time when we’re called to conduct surveillance, it means we need to actively watch where someone is going. Usually, we document what locations they go to, who lives there or if they go to a restaurant/bar, or if they’re meeting someone they shouldn’t. Since the pandemic has started we have had a surplus of calls wanting to make sure people are staying put. Many companies have contacted private investigators to ensure their employees are staying home and working. There have been multiple occasions where off-site employees are out and about rather than doing the job they were hired to do. Covert Results has experts in surveillance to let you know if your employees are doing the work. 

We at Covert Results are experts in surveillance. Our investigators have years of tactical experience in keeping an eye on our targets. The pandemic has changed how we do surveillance for some cases. People have been asked to shelter in place until the pandemic gets more stable. This means people who are usually out and about are staying in. It’s much harder to catch a cheating spouse that doesn’t leave their home…harder but not impossible. Recently, we have started receiving calls from employers trying to track what their employees are doing during their 8-hour workday. Many companies have extended time and money to protect the welfare of their employees by allowing them to work from home, and the gratitude is not always being reciprocated. 

Employees have been seen clocking in, turning on their computers, and leaving. Covert Results has firsthand experience in catching these employees in the act. Many believe they can do slight work in the morning and leave for the day. However, from what the companies have told us is they are not allowed to just leave in the middle of the workday without formally taking time off. If the employee wouldn’t just leave during the day at the office, they shouldn’t leave while working from home. What we are able to do is place investigators to watch and make sure the employee does not leave the home. In the event the target does leave, our skilled investigators are trained in how to follow and document where that employee goes and for how long. Many have been seen leaving to run errands or go to other people’s homes without work equipment in hand. Some have even been seen loading their boats in the lake.  Not many corporate jobs require a day out on the lake.

We have seen an uptick in requests for this specific type of surveillance. There have been lower level employees fired or furloughed since the pandemic started, who would love to still be working. However, employees taking advantage of their new safe workspace could ruin the process for others who truly need this option. Ask us how Covert Results can stand out from the crowd by cost-effective surveillance.
