I'd like to seek for your advise regarding a scenario which occurred recently. An employee of ours forged a signature of one of our doctors in 3 examination results. This happened while the management was out of town, and such incident was documented with a memo and a written letter of explanation from the said employee. Such incident was not given immediate action, as the management was away, and was not informed as soon as they arrived. The management was only informed when they received a letter from the doctor who's signature was forged. Apparently, this employee also went on absence without leave, and at the same time, the management finds out that he abandoned his work.
Summary of issues:
(1) Forgery of Signature
(2) Abandonment of Work
What can the company do with such incident and what are the possible sanctions for such?
Thank you very much! Hoping for your assistance.
