Yorkey Investigations provides a service to employers who suspect their employees are stealing from them.
Sometimes it is a rumour, other times it is a shortage in inventory, in other cases an employee quits and steals intellectual property or clients from their previous employer.
The employee who was hired and trusted possibly lied on their resume. The following statistics provide some insight into the problem.
- 9% of all job applicants falsely claim they have a university degree, list false previous employers or identified jobs that did not exist.
- 34% of all applicant forms contained outright lies about experience and education and the ability to perform essential functions of the job.
- 11% of job applicants misrepresented why they left a former employer.
Catching these types of pre or post employment issues is a key to an employer’s success!
