Are you guilty of fraud?

Are you guilty of fraud?

Although it’s not quite on the same level as PA Helen Baggaley, RSA has revealed that 40 per cent of UK workers have exaggerated an expense claim at least once a year.

And this fraudulent behaviour soon adds up as the commercial insurer has declared that the average cost to businesses of exaggerated claims was £1768 per person last year. When asked why they did it, a third of employee say it’s because everyone is doing it, while a quarter say it’s easy to get away with it and 20 per cent feel that the company they work for owes them something. More worryingly, 40 per cent say that embellished expense forms don’t equate to theft – regardless of the value.

Workers in the South East have been found to be most cautious in fraudulently making expense claims with an average of just £361 in exaggerated claims, compared with a massive £2170 per person in the West Midlands.
