Employees admit they would exaggerate expenses
Some employees would exaggerate expense claims from work due to the current financial strains caused by the credit crunch, it has been revealed.

A poll by GlobalExpense found that 30 per cent of British workers said they thought it was acceptable to claim more money than they were owed and 95 per cent said that if they have done so it has not been questioned by their employer.

A further 13 per cent said it was likely they would exaggerate their expenses if they found themselves in financial difficulties and thought they could get away with it.

David Vine, managing director of GlobalExpense, said: "The writing is on the wall. The further the country falls into recession and people feel the pinch, the more employees are being tempted to fiddle their expenses."

There was some good news for British workers this month as it was announced that the amount of annual paid leave they are entitled to is to go up, according to Onrec.com.
