Fraud in the workplace and its implications
08 November 2021
There are many different types of fraud, a criminal offence which is carried out for monetary gain using deceptive and illegal methods and causing financial loss to the victim. There are many ways to classify fraud. Fraud may be carried out in the workplace against a company internally by the employees, managers, officers or even the company owners themselves. This is also known as occupational fraud, and involves an abuse of trust or position for financial gain at the loss of your employer or company. To be accused of such a crime can have a significant detrimental effect on your existing career and any job prospects in the future. It can result in loss of social and professional reputation and leave you in financial ruin. If you are convicted of carrying out fraud against your employer then it can have a devastating impact on all aspects of your life, so it is important that you contact us here at ABV Solicitors so that we can delegate a top fraud solicitor to help the deal with your case and minimise the implications that this may have.
