Theft or other form of businessfraud

There are countless examples of this corporate fraud to name. Theft of company property or information is a common issue. This too can happen in various forms:

    • Employees who do business with non-existing suppliers
    • Employees who pass on sensitive business information to the competitor for a fee
    • Financial fraud or phishing (CEO fraud) on behalf of the CEO

For example, you can report tax fraud to the tax authorities or report internet fraud to the police. a handy overview of this can be found on the business square.

Which you run a risk exactly with corporate fraud?

Incidents are often jealously kept out of the media, but is it thought that the problem could be of business interest or even harm the national interest? Business information can quickly be worth a lot of money. Consider, for example, how much money the company has spent in the development of a new product or a marketing campaign. And how much would the competitor want to be informed of this early in order to take advantage of it?

Also consider submitting large quotations. Would be the same competitor do not want to know what you offer and then offer the same product or service cheaper? Passing on such information is also considered theft and corporate fraud.

Make no mistake: fraud within a company is more common than you think. Take a tour of the department where sensitive information is processed. What do you see then? Information often stays behind on the desk, in the trash or on open computers.

A short advice on dismissal of a fraudulent employee

Finally, something to think about. Corporate fraud acts can be grounds for instant dismissal. At that time, the dismissed employee is not entitled to wages and will not receive unemployment benefits. An employee who does not agree with the dismissal can claim return and thus claim work and wages, apart from, for example, claiming compensation, transition compensation and fair compensation in proceedings.

The interests and financial consequences of such a dismissal are enormous for your company. The fraudulent employee has nothing to lose and often starts legal proceedings. It is therefore very important to have a good foundation for the dismissal. This is only possible by thoroughly investigating the conduct before the dismissal in order not only to establish the facts, but also to record the evidence. Never try to do this yourself, but engage a specialist who knows exactly how this works.
