This guide, produced in association with CIFAS, aims to raise awareness of the potential threats posed by staff fraud and dishonesty and provide examples of generic best practice to help employers to deal with associated risks.

The majority of staff within any organisation are trustworthy and honest; however, the consequences of the actions of the small proportion of staff who do defraud their employers are potentially dangerous to organisations, who must therefore think of ways to ensure a culture of openness, honesty and integrity throughout their workforce.

This guide outlines how organisations can combat staff fraud effectively, including:

  • insights into why staff commit fraud, including the role of organised crime
  • how pre-employment vetting can be used to ascertain the integrity of incoming staff
  • interview techniques that can be used to prevent employing potential fraudsters.
