6 Tips to prevent Employee Theft and Fraud
1. Do Pre-Employment Background Checks.
It’s amazing how many employers do not do background checks They are essential for every company, especially on employees who will be handling cash, high-value merchandise, or have access to sensitive customer or financial data.
2. Check References
There are no federal laws requiring background checks for service workers such as TV installers or handymen, and only spotty local laws requiring service companies to do background checks. But some of those workers are actually violent felons who have even attacked customers inside their own homes.
