White Collar Crime

An accusation or charge of white collar crime, even if the defendant is ultimately exonerated, can be devastating to a firm's reputation, revenue and long-standing relationships with other businesses. Once a company's image and good name is ruined by allegations of business misconduct, it is difficult to recover and regain the confidence of clients and customers. The same is true for an employee that is charged with illegal business practices.

White Collar Crime: A Definition

The term "white collar crime" describes non-violent crimes committed in the workplace by professionals for personal financial gain. When a business person perpetrates a white collar crime, he or she uses some form of fraud or deception to acquire funds or property.

White collar crimes may be prosecuted at the state or federal level, depending upon the crime that the defendant has been charged with. If an individual is convicted of committing a white collar crime, or business crime, the punishment may include monetary fines, a prison sentence, or house arrest. These enormous penalties can take away your personal freedom and can often destroy your reputation as a respected business person.
