Toronto Lawyers Representing Clients in Employee Fraud Matters

Employee fraud is a type of civil fraud that occurs when an employee commits a fraud against the company or organization they work for. It is a serious offence that strikes at the heart of the employer-employee relationship, can provide the grounds for a just cause dismissal, and can result in significant financial losses for the employer. In addition to suffering from monetary losses stemming directly from the fraud, an employer can also be sued for negligence for failing to prevent fraud, or for vicarious liability over the employee in question.
