40 Months in Jail for Stealing £1 Million

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 jailed for forty months yesterday after stealing almost one million pound from his employees. 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 authorities have yet to recover this.

Although this was a bad thing to do, you really have to winder about the business. How can they not notice someone has taken £1 million pounds from them are they really making that much? Next all I can say is why was this person not scanned in full to see whether or not he had 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 are needed for a reason. You should be willing to also get and chase up some personal references.

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

3) Check their credit score and personal history, before you employ them get them to sign and agreement where you are allowed 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.
