Corporate investigation covers many areas of surveillance, factual investigation, research, and evidence location and preservation. These investigations include business and franchise disputes, workplace fraud, workcover fraud, embezzlement, drugs and other criminal activity, complaints of bullying, inappropriate workplace behaviour, inappropriate relationships, sexual harassment and corruption. The evidence may be used in a court, tribunal, negotiation, or internal process. They may include investigations and surveillance relating to civil action by, or against the corporation. Civil action is similar to criminal prosecution, but with lower evidence standards (criminal - beyond reasonable doubt, civil - on balance of probability); an action taken in either jurisdiction does not mean that a party is guilty, it can be an indication of a dispute, hostility, or legal maneuvers. This is why we have a court case. They also include resume verification and Australian or international background checks. Corporate Investigations include benchmarking, due diligence inquiries and confirmation of compliant behaviours, by both their employees and others, through observation, surveillance and factual investigation. Allegations of corruption, criminal activity, and inappropriate relationships require investigation, for the company to meet its obligations to owners, employees, and shareholders. When you need to investigate, a licensed private investigator provide distance between the company and the investigation. We provide a service that covers corporate investigation, civil action, criminal investigations, brief compilation, and criminal defence investigation, and many other areas. Our basic role is to investigate, compile evidence, and report.

However, as bullying is a perception, a subject judgement initially, often other stressers may contribute; at times, when the reaction does not seem to align with the initial alleged incident, this may need to be examined.
