More Reasons To Take Easy At Work
I knew there was a reason why I never got along with my coworkers who liked to brag about how many hours they work. As it turns out, they are all criminals! (Or something like that)
EMPLOYEES who work excessive hours, refuse to delegate and fail to take up their full holiday entitlement are more likely to commit fraud, according to a new report.

An anti-fraud guide due to be published by accountancy firm Ernst & Young tomorrow reveals that 85% of the world’s worst financial frauds have been committed by insiders at the firm in question.

While the report warns employers to watch out for obvious signs of potential fraudulent behaviour - such as employees who appear to be living far beyond their financial means - it also points a finger of suspicion at workaholics.
