CLUB FRAUD HOTLINE
There are three major Sections in this Club Fraud Hotline website:
What is Club Tax Network's Club Fraud Hotline?
Club Fraud Hotline is a well-designed, accessible whistleblower reporting mechanism that allows for anonymous reporting of unethical practices at a Private Club.
Why should a Private Club institute a Fraud Hotline?
A whistleblower hotline is probably the easiest and least expensive means available to improve corporate governance. Waste, fraud, and abuse of authority can all be combated by having an independent reporting mechanism that uses employees to report malfeasance.
Are there valid reasons to not have a Hotline? We report, you must decide?
"The Club Manager strongly feels that the in-house system of checks and balances is working without adding another level of protection."
"I am afraid my employees will abuse the system and falsely report activities, just to harass Management."
"We are like a family at this Club and instituting a Fraud Hotline would indicate that we think somebody is stealing."
