HG has been used to address the issue of CG's failure as a controlling mechanism, suggesting that there should be needs to concentrate on people, as in the study i.e., directors and top management teams, in formulating the governance regulations. Motivated by lack of studies in CFC in Malaysia and empirical evidence in the area of HG, the study is significance to the literature through the inclusion of HG factors in the area of CFC. Using educational background and previous job experiences of directors and top management teams (TMT) as proxies to HG, the study postulates that organizations with higher HG are expected to be free from CFC incidences. In addition, the study also seeks to investigate the effectiveness of internal and external governance in relation to CFC incidences to find out whether CG roles are still relevantly effective in the current situation…
