    I say the 1st 3 but I want opinions please and reasons for them too. thank you.

    Wouldn't it depend on the type of business? lying, cheating, stealing are always high on my list. That includes falsifying reports, cheating on hours worked, including use of sick leave. But frankly, the biggest concern depends on the business. If you were a bank you might have different concerns that if you were selling hot dogs.

    One wants to set up a business management system to prevent and monitor the biggest concerns, and then use lessor management techniques to handle the lesser offenses. Take dating for instance. Yes, it is messy, but it can be handled, but favoritism or nepotism is much greater concern, or even worse, office blackmail. Lying, cheating, stealing are high on my list.

    Others will have their pet hates.
