Background Investigations

Planning on starting a business or investing in a company or a financial venture, including marriage? Or, are you considering hiring a contractor, attorney or having a medical procedure? Any of these issues are reason to perform a background investigation on an individual, co-investors, licensed professionals or companies. Commonly this process is referred to as “due diligence”. Due diligence is what seasoned and experienced individuals or investors do to protect themselves from getting involved with an individual, company or licensed professional, that has a “shady” background. These types of investigations can usually be completed quickly and cost effectively, usually for a few hundred dollars, because we have over thirty years of experience in identifying the “red flags” in an individual’s character or background or in a company’s financial profile. But conducting them after you have suffered a loss becomes quite time consuming and can cost several thousand dollars for the simple reason that after a person is victimized, the burden of proof is on the victim to then accumulate factual documentation for presentation to an attorney, or to a law enforcement agency. Amazingly, we receive many requests to conduct a background investigation or locate an individual or company or assets thereof that has defrauded someone of their money or provided them with less than adequate professional services resulting in a loss of money or of receiving less than adequate professional services. So apply the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and call us before you become a victim.



Employment Background Investigations

Let us introduce you to the most comprehensive background investigation service available today. We provide our clientele with civil, criminal, credit, worker's compensation claims, liens and judgments, U.C.C. filings, corporation and fictitious business statement research. Why are these checks relevant?  Have you ever completed an interview and reference check process and were left uncomfortable with the results? Maybe you really like the applicant but there is something about them that turns on that little voice in your head. You can eliminate that little voice by utilizing our service to dispel those uneasy feelings by dealing with facts instead of just a gut reaction.

Another good reason for utilizing our service is known to lawyers and the courts as: DUE DILIGENCE. Once your hire someone you and your company become responsible for this person's actions for the duration of their employment.

There are two basic goals that any successful business must adapt. One is to make a profit. The second and most important for continued survival is to protect your business reputation. Ask yourself. Have you hired dishonest employees who have stolen from your company? Would your business survive a highlight on the six o'clock news about a workplace violence incident where employees and/or customers were injured or killed? We don't think so. Yet businesses everywhere hire people everyday that steal from their employers or could cause damage to the company's reputation.

The sad part of this issue is that most companies don't realize that employee theft has many effects on a company that become very expensive to rectify. As for a damaged reputation, once this happens at your company everything the company has worked hard to attain changes. Often insurance costs increase, employee morale decreases along with market share. These costs can easily accumulate to thousands of dollars.

Do your company a favor, call us. We can help your company make informed hiring decisions. Remember, honest and motivated employees help make a company successful.


Non-employment Background Checks

Background checks are available to the general public. If you are considering marriage; a business partnership; using a contractor to work on your home or office; considering using medical or legal services; or for any other legal purpose, our services will provide you with a detailed insight of any individual or business entity.

Business Related Services

We have conducted thousands of business-related internal loss investigations. The majority of these losses were attributed to the lack of internal loss controls that have resulted in large losses or high operating costs. In some cases, entire companies have folded due to these types of losses. Amazingly, most losses are initially viewed as acceptable operating costs by senior management.

We can provide your business with a professional loss prevention program. To this end, we can develop a comprehensive Loss Prevention program that can reduce operating costs if implemented and managed correctly. These programs are directed at:

  • Employee Theft
  • Shrinkage
  • Inventory Controls
  • Internal/External Fraud Exposure
  • Vicarious Liability Issues
  • Workers Compensation Losses, (Loss Control)
  • Recruitment & Screening
  • Security Staff Training Programs
  • Emergency Response Plans
  • Workplace Violence Awareness
  • Site Security Surveys

COMPANY EXECUTIVES: We would like to offer you an opportunity to identify deficiencies within your company that affect your profit margin.  Donofrio & Associates is a licensed private investigation company which focuses its resources on providing executives like you with services that assure your financial goals for your company. Having personally been trained in intelligence gathering and investigation techniques, we originally provided only investigative services to clients. Over the last thirty years, those services have changed along with the evolving legal, social and economic conditions that have transformed our society and the work place. Therefore, where we were once requested to only investigate losses, we now receive more requests for preventing losses.

We believe you would agree that no business, private or public, is safe from an increasing diversity of losses. It seems that executives and managers are always faced with some type of situation they have to resolve. Most of these arise from employees but are not, in all fairness, totally responsible by this group. Any competent investigator or security director can successfully identify and stop one loss, but we pride ourselves in preventing losses, which is less expensive and is better for employee morale.

So, ask yourself the questions listed below. If you answer any of these positively, then you need our services! We are happy to discuss how our company's services can help you attain your goals.

  • Are your worker's compensation claims higher than normal for your industry?
  • Are your shrinkage percentages more than 4%?
  • Is your overall turnover over 30%?
  • Has your facility been burglarized more than twice in the last year?
  • Have your employees or clients been accosted in company parking lots?
  • Has your company equipment been stolen or damaged?
  • Are you constantly replacing equipment?
  • Are your equipment maintenance costs rising?
  • Has you company ever suffered a work place violence incident?
  • Are you losing clients to your competitors?
  • Has your company incurred any alcohol or drug related employee incidents?
  • Has confidential information been leaked form your company?
  • Has your company been named as a defendant in a lawsuit in the past 2 years?
  • Does your company use temporary employees?
  • Is employee morale low?
  • Is crime increasing around your company facility?
  • Are you unhappy with the product or service level your company provides?
  • Does there always seem to be small deficiencies with your product or service?

Again, if you answered yes to any of these questions, do yourself a favor and call us at 1 800 997 7674.
