Employee Fraud

Perception of Detection is one of the strongest deterrents to occupational fraud and theft. Let employees know you are actively seeking and auditing your business for potential fraud. High risk areas include cash, portable inventory, higher levels of customer complaints, payroll, undocumented expense reports, unusual accounts receivable balances, and fictitious vendor names. Internal controls are more effective if employees are aware of them and know you are following through with oversight and surprise audits.
