Employment Screening

Why Screen?

‘The lack of employee recruitment checks and controls in some organisations lies at the heart of the employee fraud problem. They are the first line of defence in stopping criminals placing individuals inside your organisation.’ CIFAS research, ‘Employee Fraud: The Enemy Within’

Most employees within any organisation are trustworthy and honest. However, the threat posed by those who act dishonestly should not be underestimated. Recruitment checks and controls, prior to employment, are essential in preventing infiltration and identifying employees susceptible to opportunistic fraud.

A structured employee screening programme can prevent risks such as:

  • Identity fraud
  • Staff fraud and theft
  • Culture of overstatement
  • Litigation and reputational/brand damage
  • Regulatory implications and penalties
  • Adverse impact on staff morale
  • Unnecessary costs and time associated with negligent hiring decisions.

Employing contract and temporary staff also requires employers to comply with various legislation, these include:

  • Intermediaries Legislation (IR35)
  • Agency Workers Regulations (AWR)
  • Tax avoidance and debt transfer legislation
  • Self employment legislation
  • Offshoring intermediaries
