In fact, most work done by a Private Investigator in NZ is significant but hardly worth “above the fold” headlines. Our investigators frequently work with the Human Resources departments of companies in various industries, including mining, construction, legal work, hospitals, etc. In those cases, we are hired to resolve weighty workplace issues such as harassment or bullying. Having a well-detailed report prepared by a third-party often helps to address the issue quickly. The truth is, as we all know unless this kind of workplace issues are investigated to everyone’s satisfaction, they can fester and cause enormous damage to any business or workplace.
Another task frequently undertaken by a Private investigator in NZ is accident investigation. This can be something as simple as a minor injury that may be related to Workmen’s Compensation, or something as severe as a fatality. Professional investigators, such as our staff, have the experience and the know-how to deal with these situations and how to work with the appropriate regulatory bodies in conducting an investigation.
Another job frequently undertaken by private investigators, one that may be more familiar to the public, is criminal and legal investigations. These cases are handled by former police detectives who have received rigorous training on how to work with the court system, solicitors, and their previous allies, in the legally defined proper methods used by professional PIs.
