This chapter discusses employee fraud in organizations. Deviant and criminal behavior in the form of employee fraud can greatly impact the overall financial health of an organization. Whether the dollar amount is relatively small, as in the case of an employee not properly including a ten-dollar sale, or relatively large as in the case of a top executive fraudulently misstating a company's financials to increase its stock price, the overall impact is harmful. Further, reduced profitability for a business can reduce the amount of salary and benefits the business can pay, also harming innocent employees. When taking this into consideration, fraudulent workplace behavior directed at the organization may have unintended negative consequences for individuals throughout the organization.

Keywords:   criminal behavior, employee fraud, fraudulent workplace behavior, salary, financial health
