How can our company fight fraud?
The best way to fight fraud in the workplace is with information. Conduct pre-employment background investigations on all new hires. This can turn up information from past employers or educational references that might speak to questionable behavior. In addition, teach your managers about fraud, how it harms the company, and what it might look like. Suspicious employee behavior should always be investigated, and any workplace injuries should be taken seriously. Keep tabs on your employees on social media in an effort to determine the true extent of their injuries. In addition, if you feel something is suspicious, hire an investigative firm to help. Field investigations and other forms of actionable intelligence can mean the difference between continued malingering and claim resolution.
