UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business’ 2013 Fraud and Misconduct Conference is the first event of its type ever organized by a business school. Assistant Professor Jo-Ellen Pozner developed the conference with other Haas professors to create a center of scholarship around wrongdoing in organizations.

“People who come will get a very clear picture of what state-of-the-art research is telling us across multiple disciplines about wrongdoing of all sorts, whether in corporations, in the nonprofit world, or even in the Catholic Church,” says Pozner, a Haas Management of Organizations group faculty member specializing in organizational misconduct, corporate governance, and ethics and leadership.

The 12 papers will be presented from various disciplines –organization behavior, finance, accounting, economics, sociology, and law –including:  

·         Do private equity funds game returns?

·         Cleaning house: The impact of information technology monitoring on employee theft and productivity

·         Losing the faith: stakeholder reactions to misconduct in the Catholic Church

·         Managerial ability and financial reporting discretion
