The term ‘white collar crimes’ has come to mean a wide variety of non-violent illegal activities. Things such as fraud, embezzlement, and stock manipulation are all prime examples of white collar crime. Usually these crimes take place during the course of operation of a business.
While these crimes may be non-violent, the punishments can still be quite severe. First-time offenders can be sentenced to jail in some instances, and a conviction will leave a damaging mark on your permanent record. Considering this is a crime that occurs in the workplace, being convicted of a white collar crime will have long lasting effects on your ability to gain employment even after the short-term punishments have been resolved.
