Falsifying documents.

Falsifying documents.

Falsifying documents is always unethical, illegal, and hurts everybody. The company, your employees or your customers will eventually pay the costs of falsifying documents.

Employees usually falsify documents to get more overtime, increase their bonus, or to get higher expense claims. They may alter time cards (or time clocks) to change their working hours or tamper with financial documents, inventory records or sales targets. Sometimes employers will falsify records to make their company look more attractive, for example, to lenders. In some cases, an employee has been forced to falsify records under duress from others in the company.

Explain the potential consequences of falsifying documents in your employee handbook, including the procedures for dismissal. If an employee does falsify documents and you are tempted to dismiss them, make sure you always follow proper procedures.
