staff vetting guide for local authorities


Slipping through the net: staff vetting guide for local authorities has been developed by Rachael Tiffen of the National Fraud Authority and CIFAS under the 'Fighting Fraud Locally' banner. It outlines the risks of insider fraud and contains case studies of how staff, both permanent and temporary, have submitted fraudulent applications, references and qualifications to gain employment.

The guide does not provide a one size fits all template, but outlines the key factors to consider when designing an effective screening and vetting programme. It includes examples of pre-employment questionnaires, screening policies and vetting identity, plus links to other resources.
