Employee Vetting


EMPLOYING THE WRONG PERSON COULD SIGNIFICANTLY COST YOUR BUSINESS

Your employees are valuable assets, representing your brand and reputation, so getting the right people is key and as an employer you need to ensure stringent checks are done in order to meet with compliance and regulatory requirements and reduce the risk of leaving your business exposed to potential harm.

Employee theft such as embezzlement can cost organisations billions and with the risk of internal fraud, additional resource such as time and investment in criminal proceedings and re-establishing reputational damage can significantly impact businesses.

In addition, UK employment legislation now mandates that all employers including local authorities and public sector organisations are responsible for ensuring their employees have a right to work in the UK. Keeping on top of this in a large organisation is no easy task.


FINANCIAL PENALTIES

Penalties of up to £20,000 per employee can be levied against organisations for contravening this legislation.

REGULATORY COMPLIANCE

Businesses involved in the financial sector are already required to effectively screen prospective and current employees to meet with Financial Conduct Authority regulations.

RISING COST OF RECRUITMENT

A report, by HR Review, has estimated that in the recruitment of a replacement employee, following an incorrect appointment, you’ll be left with another £30,000 cost
