Employee fraud is often caused by dishonest and fraudulent employees. An applicant who is dishonest in obtaining a job may well be dishonest once in the job. This session will help employers and fraud professionals avoid bad hires in the first place by practicing due diligence in their hiring programs. It will also cover both best hiring practices and background checks, including the current debate over the use of social media websites and credit reports in hiring.
