Still in Hot Water, Beacon Plumbing!
July 23, 2008
In a follow-up to a story we recently wrote, Beacon Plumbing is under investigation by the State of Washington. A few months ago we wrote about Felons on Payroll of a Well Known Plumbing Company. It appears they are still in hot water (no pun intended).
State regulators have opened an investigation into Beacon Plumbing, looking into issues raised in a recent KING 5 Investigation.
Beacon Plumbing has propelled itself into one of the largest residential plumbing companies in Western Washington, largely due to a advertisements that has included the catch phrase “Stop Freakin’. Call Beacon.”
State regulators say they were already watching Beacon Plumbing when the KING 5 Investigators ran a series of stories earlier this year about customer complaints.
It appears there are irregularities in their licensing practices. In addition to having felons on the payroll, plumbers don’t have the proper licensing and supervision. In addition to a comprehensive criminal records search, a proper professional license search should have been conducted. Doing an extensive employment background investigation is a great way to keep your company out of the news!
