As teams expand, internal processes grow more complex, and businesses work differently – including remotely – examples of employee fraud in an organisation also increase.

Deceptive, dishonest, corrupt and unethical behaviour can occur at all levels and can even be historical. While employee fraud occurs in multiple ways, it regularly has long-lasting impacts on both the performance and culture of a business.

What is employee fraud?

Employee fraud can include corruption, fraudulent accounting, fraudulent reporting, and the misappropriation of assets.

How we help

Grant Thornton works with our clients to investigate and understand where employee fraud has occurred, and can build evidence should the case escalate to a dismissal, charge or dispute. We provide businesses with the confidence of a skilled team in spotting traces and examples of fraudulent conduct. We balance the technical aspects relating to accounting, financial reporting and business processes with the important people skills essential for an investigation to run successfully, effectively, sensitively and discreetly.

We are able help businesses identify where an employee has been fraudulent, which can involve:

  • forensic accounting
  • trace accounting models, including asset-tracing and recovery
  • transaction due diligence.
