One in ten employees surveyed said they pulled a ‘sickie’, but 25% said their managers did the same.
A similar number believed their bosses fiddled their expense claims, while just 6% admitted to doing it themselves, according to a study commissioned by Liquid HR.
Other findings of the study included the discover that smaller firms were identified as ‘breeding grounds’ for dishonest behaviour, with lowly valued employees the mostly like offenders.
Derek Kamp, chairman of Liquid HR, was quoted on the BBC Online as saying: ‘Workers come out of this survey relatively unscathed as far as dishonesty is concerned.
‘The extent to which people suspect their managers of dastardly deeds is worrying and points to a breakdown in communication.’
