Falsifying documents.

Employees may 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 potential ramifications for their employment – for example that it may result in dismissal. If an employee does falsify documents and you would like to address that conduct, make sure you always follow proper procedures. For more information see our Termination e-guide.
