Harassment, substance abuse, violence and internal theft of prescription pads, drugs, intellectual property, forgery and money are only some of the many issues that can plague the medical industry and need the experience of a professional investigator.
Workplace investigations are essential not only to managing the workplace and resolving disputes before lawsuits arise, but you as an employer are under a legal obligation to conduct investigations that are timely, fair, discrete and effective. Properly conducted investigations often lead to important defenses after a lawsuit is filed. Effective investigations will also benefit you in the defense of later claims, including subsequent “backfire” claims for retaliation, discrimination against the alleged perpetrator and invasion of privacy.
When you need a professional workplace investigation or risk analysis conducted, additional insight into the character and activities of your subject concerning a worker’s compensation case, or security to protect you while terminating an employee, be sure to call on our expertise and almost three decades of experience. We will ensure you have a timely, fair, discrete and effective investigation conducted.
FCIS is skilled in preventing and investigating prescription drug crimes.
Prescription drug diversion is one of the fastest growing crimes and public health issues in the country. Prescription drug diversion occurs whenever an individual uses or consumes a medication in a manner other than as prescribed by the physician or manufacturer. Prescription drugs are obtained illegally by patients who “doctor shop” (going to more than one doctor to obtain medication), and through fraud and forgery, theft, burglary and robbery.
Prescription drug diversion can also be linked to collateral crimes such as burglary, theft, fraud and assaults, as drug-seekers look for other sources of prescription drugs, such as peoples’ homes and medicine cabinets. Prescription drug abuse can lead to serious medical problems and even death.
Our drug diversion investigations include:
- Contact and assistance of appropriate law enforcement
- Assistance with documentation of stolen drugs
- Provide profile of doctor shoppers
- Location and identification of drug abusers
- Handwriting analysis of forged prescriptions
- A detailed report of investigation
FCIS helps to minimize or eliminate your risks.
FCIS identifies vulnerabilities that put your business at risk by examining your current policies and procedures and analyzing the physical security of your business. Once we complete our analysis we create a plan of preparation that includes warning systems and evacuation procedures. We then train your personnel on how to implement the plan and how to work with the law enforcement community for quick response to threats. Once the new systems are in place, we re-evaluate for effectiveness.
FCIS will help decrease your liability.
In the aftermath of heightened security risks, workplace violence incidents and negligent hiring lawsuits, employers have turned to background screening for peace of mind and a way to decrease liability. Employers are using criminal court records, driving records and other consumer reports to hire safe, honest and qualified employees.
However, in this age of increased surveillance and security, applicant rights and the laws protecting individual freedoms could easily be forgotten. Through our FCRA Consulting, we help you balance your need-to-know about applicants’ backgrounds while simultaneously upholding individuals’ rights. We teach you how the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) can affect you and what you need to do to stay in compliance.
FCIS is FCRA certified. We will coordinate with your legal counsel. We ensure that you are Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) compliant, that I-9’s are verified, terrorist watch list is checked and an international background investigation is conducted.
FCIS provides you insight into occurring activities.
We have conducted surveillances on sophisticated criminal organizations and our experience is equal to none. We understand counter-surveillance measures and have participated in many cases. We can aid your in dealing with threats of workplace violence, theft and substance abuse by obtaining factual evidence by conducting discreet surveillance operations on both video and digital still photographs. We also employ GPS tracking devices whenever legally permitted.
We pay special attention to all state and federal statutory regulations, as well as private sector liability for unlawful surveillance (civil & criminal liability). We are careful not to violate anyone’s "reasonable expectation of privacy."
We provide a detailed, well-written, timely report, along with digital still photographs and video reproductions acquired depicting notable events upon the completion of the surveillance.
We are available to be present at depositions with documented surveillance evidence that was obtained in the field. We will appear for court testimony upon request/subpoena.
