Fidelity fires 200 for abuse of benefits

May 9, 2018

By Bloomberg

Fidelity Investments has fired about 200 employees who were accused of abusing company benefits, according to a person familiar with the matter. Fidelity had a program which reimbursed workers for 20% of the purchase of computer equipment up to $10,000. An audit found that some employees returned the equipment without reporting it, keeping the reimbursement allowance, said the person, who declined to be named. “We have a culture of compliance and integrity at Fidelity,” spokesman Vincent Loporchio wrote in an emailed statement. No customers were affected by the actions, he said. Read the original story from Bloomberg.
