Businesses face no end of challenges, but those challenges should not come from within. And yet, employee dishonesty is a rampant problem that plagues business owners from the smallest companies to the largest corporations and includes everything from the most minor transgressions to major thefts such as diversion of assets and commercial bribery. This CLE course, presented by Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz partners Patrick J. Boyle and Brian E. Maas will discuss the potential costs to businesses including not just lost funds and overpayments , but also security and prevention measures, insurance premiums and investigations. The course will also identify the necessary steps for business owners to recognize and neutralize areas where problems may arise as well as the options available when there is suspected misconduct.
