Employee Theft & Employment Screening and Background Check

Although it is not a pleasant topic to discuss, the fact is that theft by employees of small businesses totals nearly $40 billion in this country each year.

As hard as it is to believe that someone you hire to fill a trusted position in your company would actually take from you, it happens every day in all kinds of businesses and in a variety of ways. Moreover, it is estimated that up to 75 percent of all employee theft goes unnoticed.

Researchers show that 68.6% of employees who steal have no prior criminal background.

Some security experts predict that up to 30 percent of the nation's workers will steal at some time in their career. Difficult economic times, lack of salary increases, and the threats of downsizing and cutbacks make it even more tempting for employees to help themselves.

Employee theft can take many forms, from stealing office supplies or merchandise, to stealing time by improperly reporting sick leave and vacation to stealing intellectual property and confidential information. When employee theft is discovered, the employer/owner feels violated and often reacts out of emotion. Remembering that this is a business problem and addressing it as such will aid in quick resolution and prevention.

If you suspect theft and decide to investigate, do so thoroughly and factually. Making an accusation toward an employee can permanently damage relationships not only with that employee but also with those with whom the individual works closely. Be sure you are on solid ground before you make your suspicions known or state any accusations.

My Son found Mike at Empire Pacific because we needed a detective in order to find someone. We had spend a lot of time and money on many search people websites and never found anything current on the person we were trying to find. We hired Mike to do an initial check to find the person. Mike called and said on the initial check that he had found what we needed, he said the second step would be to go look by foot and there would be a fee per hour. About 2 hours later Mike called and told us he had found the person and gave me his current phone number. I called and sure enough it was the person I was looking for. Now this shows how honest Mike is because he could have easily billed me for a few extra hours of leg work (which is paid per the hour) and I would not have known he already found the person. Mike was very attentive when I called and either picked up his phone or called me back very fast. I would highly recommend Mike, he is vey good at what he does and is respectful, honest and FAST!

Mike Hakimi from EPIS is a true professional. He helped me with my case. He delivers effectively and fast! I was trying to find someone that nobody has heard from him from since the late 90's, I was very unsure he was still around. I needed to find him and interview him for my movie project. A key character. And Mike incredibly found him. Don't hesitate hiring Mike for any type of service.

I have highest, highest praise for Mike at Empire Pacific Investigative Services. I had to take someone to court and I was concerned whether sheriff is efficient enough to do the serving or they will just attempt and I pay for nothing. I talked to Mike about serving this particular person and on top of it I try to force future steps of collection and Mike was extremely helpful to show me in and outs of all the options that I have and how he can help me.

My concern was the person that I am suing would play hide and seek, not available during the day and difficult to catch. Sure enough Mike served the paper within 2 to 3 days and informed me accordingly.

I am so happy to know Mike and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that has needs for his services.

I contacted Mike at Empire to do some research for me on an old insurance claim. It ended up not being along the lines of work that he was an expert in but what was so great about the experience was that Mike went out of his way to find me someone that did specialize in the area. If you are considering a couple options on who you need for your investigation you...
