I'm all for checking, including surveilling, where useful and appropriate. But not at a private profit-maximising company's whim, the final "Ok" belongs in a judge's hands.

If the company does indeed have substantiated reason to suspect fraud they should be given the option to get a court ruling allowing them the surveillance. But not without control. How can a private company be given more options than the police!
Actually it's not a private company maximising profit. This is about Socialversicherung - about people drawing STATE benefits (whether federal, cantonal or local community).

This would cover mainly people claiming to be disabled or sick but are not (which is the case I referred to above) or people claiming social insurance/ALV but working for example. Basically people defrauding those of us that pay tax.

Edit - also the powers are considerably lower than the police. There's a nice little chart in the explanatory booklet.
