India Loses US$40 Billion to Employee Fraud Each Year

Best Background Checks Mumbai

Better Safe Than Sorry!

I was stumped by a recent research done by a Pune-based research and consultancy firm which stated that ‘India maybe losing around US$40 billion to employee fraud every year‘. A shocking statistic and something that can be greatly avoided if companies take the necessary precautions before hiring an employee. In India mostly it is the executive search firms and the recruitment companies that normally do the required background checks for candidates but as the job market becomes more competitive and as the economy grows, the requirement for background check specialists with intensive and specialist skills are becoming all the more imperative.

Industry statistics clearly demonstrates that there are material misstatements or omissions beyond acceptable limits in the employment history of applicants. There can be an over statement of designation or having worked at a job for a longer period than is accurate etc. In our experience, some common types of inaccurate information discovered through an employment verification include:

  • Dates of employment extended to cover job changes
  • Position, title or responsibilities – faked or exaggerated
  • Employer listed is fictitious

Our specialists will contact the employer to verify information provided to them by the applicant. The report will contain dates of employment, last position and responsibilities handled along with eligibility to be hired.

Our Background Verification Services can be broken up into Pre and Post-Offer Services:

Pre-Offer Services

1. Reference Check

Candidate will be asked for two professional references of his Past / Present colleagues as well as we shall talk to at two of his past colleague / Senior without his / her knowledge and a reference check will be done in a standard format OR any customized format specified by the client. Below is the standard format that we usually choose:

1. Documents collection

After a refer check / background verification is done, generally we collect below mentioned documents from the candidate….

  1. Copy of Submitted Resignation
  2. Copy of Accepted Resignation

  4. Salary / TDS slip for the last (or last drawn) month from the previous employer.

  6. Complete details (name /designation /contact number /email-id) of the Reporting Authority
  7. Complete details (name /designation /contact number /email-id) of the HR Head.
  8. Attested copies of academic and professional credentials.
  9. Updated copy of your CV.
