Tenet’s extensive experience and knowledge about fraud and dishonesty means we are ideally placed to advise employers on how to reduce the risk of fraud or how to respond when fraud is suspected or discovered.
Our experience of advising on numerous employee dishonesty cases means we have a good understanding of contractual and implied duties owed by employees to their employers. We can help quickly identify where employees are a ‘fiduciary’ i.e. have heightened duties or when you need to understand whether the restrictive covenants in an employee’s contract are enforceable to protect the interests of your business where you suspect dishonest behaviour.
Key when suspecting fraud is to know what to do in terms of your initial investigation steps, who to inform, who to involve, who to exclude, what court procedures can help (such as non-party disclosure or freezing injunctions) and how to deal with your regulator or any other authority if relevant to you.
These decisions can take up valuable time and when managing uncertainty and high risk you need advice you can action quickly so you can be confident you are doing all that is possible to protect your organisation.
Tenet keeps things simple and whether we are needed to help educate your employees of fraud risks or to use the tools of the Court process, we can offer clear solutions and help you understand the process.
