Employee absenteeism can create significant productivity and profitability problems for a company. The law provides that a worker may, legitimately, take time off work for various reasons, such as family, personal or health reasons. However, when absence becomes a routine, it could hide other situations, such as a second job, the extension of weekends or holidays, or even the simulation of assistance to a family member (law 104). In these cases, the company can use an authorized detective agency to ascertain the real reasons for absenteeism and, if confirmed, proceed with the dismissal for just cause of the employee.

The importance of private investigations in companies

Private investigations carried out by a detective agency, through qualified private investigators, can provide the company with the information and evidence necessary to take legal action against absentee employees. The evidence collected will be included in an investigative dossier that will have evidentiary value in the trial. In this way, the company will be able to protect its productivity and profitability, ensuring a healthy and responsible working environment.

Benefits of using a detective agency

Hiring an authorized detective agency to combat company absenteeism offers numerous advantages for a company:
