Cheating at work to get extra travel expenses

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If an employee is entitled to travel expenses to move his family from his city to his place of work, and his family did not in fact move, rather he forged documents and received an amount of money for that, is that permissible or not?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

This action is not permissible according to pure Islamic sharee’ah, because he is acquiring money by means of lying and deception. Acquiring money in that manner is haraam and must be denounced and warned against. May Allaah grant us sufficient provision and keep us safe from that. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
