Cleaner was hired, we specified what needed doing in the form of a list of cleaning tasks and a price was agreed. We expected it to take a couple of hours but I couldn't give a toss if it only took half an hour so long as the job was done to an agreed standard. Obsessing about time spent on a job instead of the quality of the end product is typical of a bad manager.
    Oh, and I would never dream of spying on an employee without having reasonable suspicion. If you don't feel you can trust someone, then what the hell are you doing giving them a key to your home? If I was a cleaner, and I noticed spy cameras, I too would turn them around, either that or show it my ass and then walk out leaving the key draped over it.
    Exactly. and I said that to them too. Its just that a month or so ago we started to notice that things were being missed, the work was not up to scratch and we were getting increasing sorry didnt have time to do that today excuses.

    I had a polite word with the company about 4-5 weeks ago and they promised to sort it. I had the same conversation 2 weeks ago and said I'd give the cleaner a few weeks final chance.
    So yes I had reasonable grounds to suspect. And I was right of course.

    I get the feeling this has been going since at least when I first complained.

    Fair enough. Have you tried a different agency?
