Background Investigations

Background Investigations: Corporate, Internal / External Investigation, Litigation Support, Insurance Claims, Fraud, Theft, Wrongful Death, Accidents

Summit Loss Prevention Consulting provides comprehensive background investigation services to businesses of all kinds and sizes. We conduct extensive research to provide you with detailed information about criminal history, civil and financial issues, and driving records from state motor vehicle agencies.

Knowing the background of the people you hire, or vendors you'll be working with, has become increasingly important as, in recent cases, companies have been held liable for the actions of the people that work for them. This is call Vicarious Liability, also known as "imputed liability."

An employer can be vicariously liable for an employee’s actions when: 

  • The employer knowingly hires unqualified employees and a harm results
  • An employee was unfit to be retained and that a supervisor knew of this employee’s unfitness

Background Investigations: Hiring the Wrong Person Can Cost You Big Bucks

Poor hiring practices cost American businesses millions of dollars each year. 30% of all business failures can be directly linked to negligent hiring. A few startling statistics reveal:

  • 74% of all employment verifications reveal exaggerated or fraudulent information
  • Employee embezzlement costs more than $4 billion a years
  • Alcohol and drug abuse costs more than $66 billion in lost productivity a year
  • More than 7 million Americans abuse drugs each month
  • 73% of all drug users are employed
  • 13 people die from workplace-related violence each week
