The infiltration of criminal enterprises in the workplace has risen dramatically in recent years. Now human resources and operations supervisors are faced with a complex workplace investigation, that if conducted internally may jeopardize professional codes of conduct.
Such gangs have boldly moved such operations into large and small manufacturing companies, literally establishing underground criminal networks behind the back of supervisor’s offices.
The root of these incidents is a result of lack of comprehensive background policies, lax hiring procedures of employees, and use of undocumented migrants in the workplace.
Criminal syndicates with well-organized drug and sex trafficking operations have extended their operations into the U.S. for higher profits.
The investigation of drug and sex trafficking in the workplace should only be conducted by law enforcement or a licensed team of private investigators.
