White collar crime can involve a wide range of offences relating to commercial companies and employees in the business sector, including financial crimes such as money laundering, market manipulation, city cartels, securities fraud, embezzlement, bribery and corruption and corporate fraud.
Employees facing allegations of fraud involving white collar crime may be unwittingly implicated in a wider investigation and face charges of conspiracy to defraud.
