Working for Competitors
Sentry Investigations offer highly effective moonlighting investigation services to business across Birmingham and the further West and East Midland regions. If an employee is moonlighting or working for a competitor, not only is it likely to be in breach of his or her contract, it can have a hugely damaging effect on your business. It could be the simple fact that the employee is just working for a competitor, but it is more likely that the competitor is seeking information about your business regarding financial information and policies etc. Either way, an employee working for a company in direct competition to you is not going to do you any favours.
In some cases, employee's could be poaching clients and investors whilst undercutting your business. This is obviously going to have a disastrous effect on your business and could potentially put you out of business altogether. Generally, an employee that is doing this, will know full well he or she is in breach of contract. The practice of moonlighting involves deception and some very careful thinking to remain undetected. There will be high volumes of Email correspondents which can be tricky to monitor for an employer, but not impossible. Moonlighting usually involves face to face meetings in person which the employee will try and be very discreet about. Cases like these can be very complex if the moonlighter thinks about his or her every move. That being said, we have a high success rate in proving these cases in favour of the employer which has ultimately prevented many business's from ruin.
Moonlighting can be very difficult to spot from the offset, but we have put together a list of behaviours to look out for, and ways to defend your business from these types of contractual breaches. If you would like to discuss any potential moonlighting concerns you are having within your own business, feel free to give us a call and we will be happy to discuss your options.
