Is Your Employee Moonlighting?

Is your employee moonlighting?

You want and deserve, hard-working and committed employees. Though some will be better than others, as long as you’re their only employer (or you know about their other employment), things will usually work out alright. Moonlighting, however, can cause trouble.

If your employee is moonlighting, they’re doing another job potentially without your knowledge. You might feel comfortable with this – after all, don’t we all need a little extra money? – but do think carefully about the risks.

– Are you losing their loyalty?

Is your employee calling in sick more often, or skipping shifts unannounced? They may be working elsewhere and leaving you to pick up the pieces.

By staying with your company, your employee could be getting the best of both worlds, but can you handle their regular inability to show up when they’re supposed to be working?

– Are they sharing business knowledge?

Worse than flaky employee behaviour is the possibility that they’re sharing insider knowledge. Are they gaining insights into your business plans, then sharing them with a competitor? Are they using the work they’re doing for your business to complete their tasks elsewhere? Are they copying documents, or leaking important files?

When an employee is moonlighting with a job in a similar industry, there is a very real risk that they’re damaging your business – even if they don’t realise.

They may even be taking your customers. If they have access to client information, can you confidently say that they’re not contacting those same clients when working in their second job?

– Is your employee becoming less productive?

Even employees with the very best of intentions will have lower productivity levels when moonlighting. They might be missing out on sleep to balance two separate jobs, and will almost certainly be dealing with more stress.

Even if they show up whenever they’re supposed to, giving their job their full effort, it’s almost guaranteed that their ‘full effort’ simply isn’t what it used to be.

If you’re concerned about a moonlighting employee, using a private investigator could help you to get the answer that you deserve. We could gather the evidence required to open up a conversation, finding out the truth from your employee and a solution that will work for both parties.

Long lost family

Long lost family member? A Private Investigator can help

Even with the prominence social media has in our lives, it can be hard to track down someone you have little information on. Luckily, our dedicated team of Private Investigators can help you find a long lost family member, whether it be a cousin, sister, uncle or parent. Here’s how we can help.

Emotional distance

Having emotions run high can sometimes squander and inhibit your ability to find out information. A Private Investigator operates on a professional basis and, as they are not connected to the lost family member in question, they can remain free of the extreme emotions you may feel if personally searching, such as anger or upset. This isn’t to say that they won’t get invested in your case, though – they will.

Experience in location

Attempting to locate a lost family member can be emotionally exhausting and incredibly time-consuming. So why not hire someone that does it as their job? Not only this, but Private Investigators have refined experience and knowledge of the location that they’re working within, making their search far more efficient.

Access to classified records

Private Investigators have access to records and data collections that aren’t made readily available to the public. So, if you have a feeling that a family member is lost and/or may be missing, hiring a Private Investigator to help find them will widen your search into previously unknown horizons.

Confidentiality and respect

In some cases, it may be that the family member you are looking for wishes to avoid being found. Whether it’s because of previous tricky situations at home, or more serious family disputes, Private Investigators respect the contexts that they are given and keep everything confidential. Here at PIUK, we have a Data Protection Licence which reinforces the discreet nature of our work.

So if you have a long lost family member you want to find, consider getting in touch with us here at Private Investigations UK. We’re reliable, ethical and work with an unrivalled dedication to serving our clients. You can contact us by filling out the form here Contact Us or else call us on 0800 002 9858 OR 0773 043 9156.
