January 21st, 2015

We recommend that every small business owner consider the following best practices to reduce the risk of employee crime:

Perform thorough background checks (in accordance with law) of all potential hires; don?t take shortcuts or assume.

Make sure there is clear accountability for every position in the organization and no position has broad enough power to authorize payments without the consent of another individual. Seek to set up a system of checks and balances.
