Drafting own salary benefits

TRB-2019-4362.

A bank employee drafted his own salary benefits document using the bank's stationery, with the intent of having his direct employer believe these were the bank's proposed benefits. In the document, the employee awarded himself a higher salary and raised secondary benefits. 

The bank filed a complaint with the foundation. The Prosecutor's Office argued that the defendant should never have allowed himself to draft his own salary benefits documents and then claim they were original. The defendant accepted a settlement and a 400 euro fine. The defendant's name was added to the foundation's registry, which is accessible by all banks.
