Business Fraud Questions

What is a Business Fraud?

Business Fraud is actions taken upon by a person or business that is done in a dishonest or against the law process and that is intended to give a benefit to this person or business. A business fraud plan can go further than the extent of just a worker in a stated place, and then is marked by their complications and economic effect on the company, additional workers and outside parties.

In the state of Florida if an agent commits business fraud by filing a false claim with an insurer by cancelling the contract, is the principle obligated or does the Court protect the business from a fine if the principle was innocent?

If the principal shows that they were not involved in any way, and they cannot prove that any of the profit were gained by the principal then the principal should be able to show that they were innocent and the agent should then be proved that they had filed a false claim. Now on the other hand, if the court finds out that any of the profits were claimed by the principal, then there could be some fines could be involved, or at least repay the funds that were damaged.

In the state of New Hampshire what is the statue of limitations for "Fraudulent Conveyance"?

The bylaws for New Hampshire as stated by the Uniform Fraudulent Transfers Act:

Here are the bylaws for NH as it has accepted the UFTA: 545-A: 9 Extinguishment of Claim for Relief. A claim for relief with respect to a fraudulent transfer or obligation under this chapter is extinguished unless action is brought: I. Under RSA 545-A: 4, I (a), within 4 years after the transfer was made or the obligation was incurred or, if later, within one year after the transfer or obligation was or could reasonably have been discovered by the claimant; II. Under RSA 545-A: 4, I (b) or RSA 545-A: 5, I, within 4 years after the transfer was made or the obligation was incurred; or III. Under RSA 545-A: 5, II, within one year after the transfer was made or the obligation was incurred.

In Canada what are the statute of limitations for a fraudulent inducement, fraud that was committed during a contract and what is the statute of case law that specifies the basics of fraud?

The person will need to petition to the torts of dishonesty and fake misrepresentation. The basics of these acts would be shown in a book that is able to receive in many Canadian law libraries. With a civil claim there is no specific restriction time period. A business cannot stand for itself without any place of the court. The person will need to think about the options of keeping a civil court case attorney to act as the person’s business supporter. This attorney will possibly need to send a letter that shows litigation. If a statement is not reached, then the person will now need to take legal action. If this person is representing themselves, then that person will need to send a certified letter insisting reinstatement before taking legal action. The Law Society of Upper Canada’s legal representative recommendation service could then offer this person with the names of different local a civil court case with a public prosecutor who would then take action on behalf of that person’s business.

If a company employment agreement states they can terminate for any reason if believed the termination was considered business fraud, can the company be sued even though the agreement says they can terminate for any reason?

If in the employment contract, the employer states that they can terminate an employee for any given reason, then the employer has the right to terminate this person. Now if the fraud was committed against another person to the contract, then that person could possibly have a cause of action against that company for fraud. However, if the cause of action wasn’t for terminating the contract, then it would be for fraud.

When you feel as if a business that you work for is committing business fraud against another company, or that another business is trying to act dishonest towards the company you work for, depending on the different business frauds there maybe some legal actions to proceed in. For more information on business fraud and how a person can take legal action against this type of fraud contact the Legal Experts online.
