New York associate Shira Forman spoke with reporter Joyce Rosenberg on how to handle employee theft.  Forman noted, “If a current staffer is suspected of stealing, bosses should still “cut off access and stop the bleeding.”  One approach might be to put the employee on leave while you investigate, and have any kind of data access frozen while you do that.  It’s a good idea, whether an owner suspects or knows for sure that a staffer has stolen, to get legal advice on how to proceed.”
