qualification fraud


HR Fraud accounts for 28% of all fraud committed. Like Payroll Fraud, another big contributor of HR Fraud is Qualification Fraud.

When your business is recruiting for a position that requires an academic qualification, it is not enough to simply trust that the candidate has the qualification they claim to have. A business has to have a clear policy regarding pre-employment screening that covers at least the following to ensure they do not end up with the embarrassment of employing unqualified applicants:

• Screen ALL potential employees
• Perform screening of tertiary qualification/s, membership of professional association/s and employment history; and carry out credit and criminal background checks.
• Ensure the application form requests all relevant information, including consent for checks.
• Be clear about how you will deal with false or forged documents.
