Fraud Against Employers
Defence Lawyers Helping with Fraud Against Employer Allegations.
Did you know that in Ontario and across Canada, employees are considered to be in a position of trust toward their employer and that violating this trust is viewed as far more serious than stealing from a third party? Stealing from an employer can result in severe penalties.
Stealing from an employer is a serious form of criminal theft in Canada that often results in penalties of prison and a criminal record upon conviction. Having a skilled Toronto criminal defence lawyer on your side can often be the difference in the outcome of a case. Damien R. Frost has more than 30 years of criminal law experience. He and his associates routinely defend employees facing accusations and charges of:
- Money laundering
- Employee theft of physical property
- Tampering with electronic data and computer systems
- Stealing of company secrets, intellectual property and other types of proprietary information
As in all criminal cases, entering a plea of guilty to a fraud charge can have profound consequences. Having a criminal record related to employee theft and fraud may affect your ability to find work, your immigration status, your reputation, your family and your personal freedom. Not only will Mr. Frost and his associates work diligently to minimize the consequences that you are facing, but they also will make every effort to keep a low profile during criminal cases, protecting you from any undue attention or negative publicity.
Because of Mr. Frost’s experience and skill, he has earned a reputation amongst fellow lawyers as well as judges and other professionals in the community for his ability to handle complex cases as well as appeals involving white collar fraud, especially where the value is over $5,000. If it is alleged that you have committed fraud in excess of one million dollars the Criminal Code imposes a minimum jail sentence of two years in the penitentiary. You need the expertise and experience that Damien R. Frost & Associates can provide.
Protect your present and your future. Before you speak with your employer or the police, talk with Mr. Frost and his associates about your situation, your legal needs and to learn about your options.

I was charged along with nine other physicians with fraud against OHIP. I was also the subject of a complaint before the College of Physicians and Surgeons arising from the same allegations. I was assigned counsel by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). On the advice of a friend who was a Crown Counsel I insisted that I be allowed to retain Mr. Frost. I am very pleased that I was allowed to do so. Mr. Frost (together with Ms. Samantha Peeris) provided me with first class representation. He convinced the Crown to drop the charges against me. His office always kept me informed in a timely fashion of any developments. He clearly understood the impact of these allegations on my professional reputation. Mr. Frost always maintained a very low profile. Mr. Frost went on to represent me before the College of Physicians and Surgeons ensuring that no disciplinary was taken. I continue to practice medicine in my area of expertise.Dr. C.
