Timecard fraud is equivalent to cheating employees by running away with all the cash stored in a cash register of a company. But how? Let’s find out. Timecard frauds, throughout their history, have caused a lot of damage to the revenues of a company. It is quite evident that if an employee or a worker is working lesser hours than he or she was appointed for, and taking a full salary, it is doing financial damage to the company. Their lower performance is adding up to the decrease in the revenues generated by a company, and on the other hand, there isn’t a decrease in the salary expenses, and they are taking away their full salary against which they aren’t producing enough.
Now, if we are talking about a single employee or worker, the negative impact on the company’s revenue sheet may be insignificant. Still, if a significant percentage of employees start doing this fraudulent act, the impact can become noticeable. According to statistics, around 45 percent of the workers working on hourly wages are found involved in Timecard fraud, and every one out of five of these employees is found guilty of punching in their work colleagues, which is itself a big fraud.
How to catch those involved in this fraud
As an employer, the first step to take to stop these kinds of fraudulent activities is ensuring that all the employees in the organization are well aware of the corporate procedures and policies of the company. They must be having a signed employee agreement form at all times to make sure that they abide by all the laws, regulations, and policies of the company under the surveillance of the human resources department.
