Workcover Investigators Helping Businesses in Phillip Island From Being Defrauded

  • Are you concerned about the truthfulness of a workers claim?
  • Is a workplace investigation required to establish whether the claim is legitimate and or the extent of injury or damages suffered by the worker?
  • Was the worker really injured? If so, did the event and or injury occur at work, or did it occur outside of work?
  • Could, or should the worker be now back at work, but instead is hiding behind a false medical certificate. Is the worker capable of returning to work?
  • Is the worker being paid workers compensation, whilst undertaking other work?

Fraudulent worker claims are a major problem in Phillip Island (and in Australia in general). False claims for physical and psychological injury can be difficult to disprove without sufficient resources and or experience.

Complete Corporate Services (CCS) have conducted over ten thousand Workcover investigations, developing a large skill base and experience in this area, including specialist factual, intelligence and surveillance skills. We are experts at:

  • Identification of intelligence and analysis;
  • Undertaking workplace investigations into recorded data sets, identifying evidence to support inferences or concerns;
  • Interviewing witnesses and preparing formal statements;
  • Locating persons of interest;
  • Identification of third-party causation;
  • Performing licensed surveillance including;
  • Static covert camera surveillance;
  • Drone surveillance;
  • Human source static and moving surveillance

Employers request investigations to determine the facts surrounding an injury for which a workers' compensation claim has been made. These investigations are also referred to as "factual investigations".

Circumstance or factual investigations are often arranged to:

  • assist in the determination of liability;
  • examine common law potential;
  • examine recovery potential;
  • assess damages;
  • investigate other aspects of the claim;
  • establish whether there has been scheme abuse.

As a supplier to Workcover, CCS complies with its Code of Practice for Private Investigators as a condition of registration, Client confidentiality and the National Code of Privacy Principles.


Surveillance investigations are a claims management tool used by Agents to discreetly determine a worker's activities and capabilities.

Surveillance should only be used if:

  • other less intrusive methods of investigation have been considered and have been assessed to be ineffective and inadequate or have been tried and found to be inconclusive; and
  • there is adequate evidence to suggest the worker may be:
  • misrepresenting their disability;
  • claiming excessive disabilities; or
  • involved in the commission of a fraud.

Phillip Island Spousal and Infidelity Investigations

If you need to know the truth about your partner and their activities, then speak to CCS about our Phillip Island spousal investigations.

In life, information is power!

The power to make accurate decisions. The power to stop problems before they damage you.

Many clients in Phillip Island engage us to provide intelligence about what their partner is doing.

Why is their partner so secretive?

What do they do with their money? Where are they all day, or after hours?

By engaging us, the outcomes have often been staggering!

In many cases we identify that partners are cheating and provide details of who they are cheating with and when.

A common theme in many cases relate to partners who say that they are separated, but are not, and still carrying on a normal life with their wife and family.

Some of gambling (e.g., pokie) habits. In another case a husband was bringing home several male partners for sex, whilst his wife and family were at work and school.

We use a number of techniques and methodology to provide our clients with high quality accurate intelligence.


We are discreet and professional, keeping your existing relationship in tact while we find out the facts.

Talk to us about what we can do to help uncover the truth about a cheating partner, without getting found out and ruining the relationship (in the very rare case she/he isn't doing the wrong thing)

Central to our core business, our Government Licensing and Code of Practice is the issue of Confidentiality. Most of our matters are SENSATIVE. They require timing, tact, and empathy.

Our clients expect us and our personnel to maintain their confidence. Any breach of confidentiality could potentially see us out of business.

When dealing with you we are bound by client confidentiality and in some cases where a divorce or financial settlement are the result of our findings, you retain "Privilege", a legal status that prevents anybody getting information from us, unless you authorize such, in writing.

All information that we gather is your property. You may direct us in writing to destroy all information post or at any part of any investigation.

From our initial communication with you, considerations include the following:

  • Could your telephone, or email be compromised with the potential of a third party intercepting all communication?
  • Is there a need to communicate via other means?
  • The selection of methodology that will not expose and keep all enquiries secretive
  • All initiatives are undertaken on a need-to-know basis. Dissemination of information relates only to relevant and necessary parties. E.g., Lawyers
  • Strict File security, including the use of VPN and Encrypted communication and storage
  • Reporting to clients is undertaken in a manner that is secure and, in a format, suitable to the client's needs and requirements

Case Studies

Through the years, we have accumulated a wealth of experience from the many cases we've handled as private investigator.

The following are a few of our more interesting cases:

  • Wife of Solicitor drops children at private schools and attends to her gym, followed by lunch before collecting children from school and returning home. Really? Instead of attending the gym she met with her lover every day at his high-rise unit for several hours. Human surveillance followed her from school to the lover's unit and then from the unit to school. Drone footage captured her and her lover in several areas in the unit.
  • A husband worked night work and was at home during the day whilst his wife worked, and children went to school. Covert cameras throughout the home, captured him and several males have sex throughout the home during the daytime.
  • Covert engagement with a close friend of our client during several dinners and drinks recorded evidence of the close friend admitting to having an affair with our client's wife;
  • Tracking equipment in a company vehicle recorded evidence of a person of interest going missing during working hours to visit a female and stop and play poker machines.

Do I marry this person or not?

Entering a relationship is a big commitment. There are major ramifications relating to separation, asset division and care of children. Do you really know who you are getting involved with? Don't wait until it is too late.

CCS undertakes a wide range of intelligence, covert operations and surveillance providing high level due diligence of persons of interest. Most people will only disclose good or appropriate information. They will not provide information that is likely to make you think twice. Is there a love from the past that is still close and a threat to your relationship? Are their weekends away for mates or girlfriends, that require monitoring.

A five-day bucks party in Bali identified at least four(4) females who had slept overnight with the fiancée groom.

Intelligence analysis identified that a future wife was formerly the defacto of the president of an outlaw motorcycle club, a fact which had never been disclosed to her current fiancée.

Whether you are entering a personal relationship, business relationship, investor relationship or about to appoint someone as an employee, doing your homework is a good move to protect you. In some cases, comprehensive Due Diligence will support what you know about the person of interest and will allow you to move forward with confidence.


Alcohol, Drugs, Gambling & Parenting, Not a Good Combination

We receive regular enquiries from parties who are very concerned about the ability of a parent to take care of children post separation adequately and safely. Are carers in a responsible state, or are they intoxicated, taking drugs and or spending their time gambling. If you have children in this situation you need to protect them, by knowing what is going on and not exposing them to persons who are irresponsible with their care.

We regularly produce good quality evidence of concerning conduct with children via a range of methodology, and produce high quality Affidavits supporting client positions, and proving inaccuracies of the other sides case.

Domestic Violence Order Breach

CCS specialises in providing supporting evidence of stalking, breach of DV orders and or otherwise concerning behaviours. Via a range of methodology, including human and static surveillance, general investigations, and intelligence analysis, we frequently provide briefs of evidence that allow them to act via either their legal advisors and or law enforcement. All work undertake is supported with high quality evidentiary documents and court room evidence.


Family Matters – Fraudulent representations: (Assets, Maintenance)

In family separation matters, non-disclosure, and or fraudulent disclosure is common. What or where are assets that are not being disclosed? A parent is not disclosing a real source of income or lowering recorded income to avoid child or spousal maintenance.

CCS specialises in asset identification and real levels of income via various methodology and strategy. Our work has identified millions of dollars of assets hidden behind other person's identity, corporate veils, and trusts. We have also provided substantial evidence of persons of interest working, levels of work and levels of income, providing evidence to courts, and the Child Support Agency.
