Employee theft at small businesses is a big problem and getting bigger with the sour economy. 82% of small to mid-size businesses report they have experienced employee theft. If you know what broad types of fraud schemes exist and have some basic knowledge of internal control, perhaps it can help you prevent employee fraud at your company. If you take small, simple steps, you can create a healthier internal control system and help discourage employee fraud at your company.
