Unauthorised Absence

Unauthorised Absence

Get the facts and evidence to make an informed decision

We provide cost-effective services to help you prevent and eliminate unauthorised absence

Problem Employee?

If you're an employer with a member of staff that is repeatedly taking unauthorised absence then Blackburn Detectives can offer practical and impartial advice.

Blackburn Detectives help provide evidence of false sickness, giving the employer the full facts and evidence to make an informed decision on how to deal with the employee.

Our evidence will determine whether you have an employee with a genuine medical complaint or establish if you have a problem employee that’s just pulling 'a sickie' with no regard to your business.

In many cases, when an employee is confronted with evidence of unauthorised absence they will resign without dispute, eliminating the requirement for disciplinary and tribunal procedures.

Blackburn Detectives Recommendation

In the first instance, Blackburn Detectives always recommend at least 10 hours surveillance. This will allow us to monitor the subject’s movements and give us a good indication as to whether further investigation would be necessary. You can then discuss with your Case Manager if additional surveillance would be beneficial to you.

All the evidence we gather on your behalf is done so legally. Your surveillance is carried out by 2 highly trained agents and we provide you with court ready reports. All video and photographic stills are time and date stamped.
