If you are accused of stealing from your employer, the consequences can be extremely serious. On discovering that an employee has been involved in theft or fraudulent practices, many employers' first step is to contact the police to report this.
Wilford Smith's Fraud Solicitors have a wealth of experience when it comes to supporting employees in cases involving alleged fraud, bribery and dishonesty in the workplace. We can provide expert legal guidance if you are subject to internal investigations by your employer or by a regulatory body, helping you to protect your career and your reputation.
Workplace fraud can range from small-scale fraud such as falsely claiming expenses to substantial organised fraud that can result in an employer losing large amounts of money or even going out of business. In cases where the sums stolen are considerable, employers may take legal action to recover these monies, freezing bank accounts and assets while a civil court action is formulated. Such steps can have a devastating impact in the short-term, even if an employee is subsequently found to have done nothing wrong. If you become aware that you are the subject of an investigation into workplace fraud you should contact a solicitor immediately. Wilford Smith's Criminal Defence Lawyers can provide clear, sympathetic, and straight-forward advice to reassure you, and to help you conduct the most robust defence possible.
