The economic investigation agency Lentz recorded a sales increase of 21.5% compared to the same period this year. Sick pay fraud is already not a trivial offence. In addition to the material damage, also the burdens the company employees are affected. “Accounted for around 55 percent in volume, to review the salary fraud. The terrifying over 70 percent of all observed employees could be transferred beyond reasonable doubt through our commitment”, so Marcus Lentz, Managing Director of the economic detective agency Lentz.

The pretense of incapacity for work is not only a reason for a termination, but represents also a highly unfair behaviour towards colleagues. So, the employees that are must often take remaining work and arrange with higher temporal load. Honest and really sick workers have to fear nothing, however, checks by detectives. The perhaps unpleasant connotation that the workers might just faked the illness, can be eliminated through the targeted use of well trained, reputable detectives quickly and efficiently and can be seen as well as a trust assurance measure”, as the spokesman of arbeitgeberverband literally.
