Which employees are most susceptible to fraud? Any employee who submits expense reports; those who are involved in accounts payable functions or purchasing functions are especially in danger. Training these individuals, as well as all employees, on company policies, procedures and code of conduct is imperative.
Employees will often refrain from committing felonies if they know that their organization will hold them accountable for fraud. One of the most successful methods of fraud prevention and detection is a fraud hotline, because it lets employees report company policy violations anonymously that may otherwise go unexposed.
