Housing association fraud

We trust our people. We work together for a common cause. The result is whilst we know we need to educate our people about fraud, for some reason we never think it will happen to us. The reality is that there is a real prospect of one of your people (or more) not following the rules and worse, committing fraud.

Having lived and breathed employee fraud investigations for housing associations, in this session specialist fraud and financial crime solicitor, Arun Chauhan, will examine why employees do not follow the rules, and provide an overview of key considerations and tips for running an internal fraud investigation.
