Employee/Member Theft

In the last year, we have had several cases of substantial crime losses involving employees, officers and members.

Almost all of these claims could have been avoided or at least substantially mitigated if good practices and common sense had been used by the Lodge’s management.
• Procedures must be established to provide checks and balances. In any operation, this can be done by not allowing any one person to have control over all aspects of the process.
• Internal audits should be conducted without prior notice; all external audits should include a full review of all operations concerning the handling of money or the processing of invoices.
• It is also strongly recommended that a two-signature procedure be established.
• No individual or group should be allowed to incur debt or obtain access to credit for the Lodge without approval of the Lodge or Grand Lodge if necessary.
