Addict Steals over 900k

As the financial crisis goes into full swing, lots of people are looking for ways to earn a little bit extra. But what gambling addict Chris Proudfoot has done is definitely not the way forwards. Chris was sent to prison for around 40 months after stealing just over 900k. He worked as a book keeper and it is said that over a three year period he took money to pay back debts on his credit cards which were caused by online poker, roulette and overall gambling. The police department are still searching for this.

Although this was a bad thing to do you may have to wonder about the company in question. It amazes me how a company cannot notice that £1 million pounds has gone, are they really getting that much revenue? Secondly why was this person not checked in full to see whether or not he has a bad habit? I have put together a few tips that employees can use as a checklist so this does not occur.

1) Check references, a lot of employees take reference details but never bother in checking them or if they do send it off once they never bother chasing them up. References were invented for a purpose. You should definatley also try to get some personal references from the person.

2) Trial, I know we have three month probationary periods, but what about giving employees week trials? This would efficiently let you know if they are good.

3) Try to get permission to check their credit score. A credit score shows in depth information about people, would you rather employ someone with a good or bad score. Maybe if the business checked then this could have been avoided.
