 A daily newspaper on just about any given day and there's a very good chance you will see an article about one or more employees caught stealing in some form from their place of employment.    Advice- From A Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton Private Investigator, Employee theft - pilfering, larceny and embezzlement to name a few - comes under the umbrella of what is considered fraud. The end result is the same: businesses suffer a loss. On average, it takes 18 months for an employer to catch an employee who is stealing.

Every year billions of dollars are lost by businesses nationwide to employee fraud and theft and the number of incidents are rising. If your business is small, you're especially vulnerable to occupational fraud and less able to absorb a loss than a larger business.

Florida Employee Theft Investigations.


Are Employees Stealing.

How to resolve situations if employee theft is suspected  - If employment fraud is suspected, one should seek legal advice and the services of a licensed private  immediately.  While the main aim will be to obtain evidence that will stand up in court, one should proceed with caution. There is a risk of being taken to an employment tribunal should one's suspicions prove incorrect or should one act in a way that breaches an employee's employment law rights. In addition, the way one gathers evidence or checks personal data on employees must comply with the Human Rights Act and the Data Protection Act. Employers should always carry out a full identity check on any new employee.

Be clear with employees that your company has zero tolerance for employee theft of any sort. This includes not only stealing, but also things such as taking a long lunch break, using sick leave when not sick, doing slow or sloppy work, or coming to work late or leaving early.

Write and distribute a company policy that outlines exactly what constitutes stealing. Contact your local police department if you do discover an incident of employee theft. .

Business owners and senior management must themselves be role models of honesty and integrity, or they may risk setting up a work environment that justifies illegal and criminal activity.

Avoid at all costs allowing the finances of a business to be handled and controlled by a single individual. Separation of duties is critical, and no employee should be responsible for both recording and processing a transaction.

Run irregularly scheduled surprise audits or have a third party audit your books once a year.

Make sure all checks, purchase orders, and invoices are numbered consecutively, and regularly check for missing documents.

Use a "for deposit only" stamp on all incoming checks to prevent an employee from cashing them.

Most incidents of employee theft are revealed by coworkers, but many still are hesitant to report these incidents to their employers. Set up a system whereby employees may report employee theft anonymously.

Require all checks above a nominal amount to have two signatures. Never sign a blank check. Sign every payroll check personally. Avoid using a signature stamp. .

Small business owners should take the time to review accounts payable by checking cash disbursements and payments. A very common scheme to look out for is billing-scheme fraud where an employee sets up fictitious "phantom" vendors.

Be alert to disgruntled or stressed employees, or those who have indicated that they are having financial difficulties. Also look for any unexplained significant rises in an employee's living standards.

A positive work environment has been shown to deter employee fraud and theft. Open lines of communication, positive employee recognition, and fair employment practices will assist in the reduction of occupational fraud.

Personally look into customer complaints that they have not received credit for payments. 



Prevent, Employee Thefts.

1. Screen employees' personal and financial background. This must be done prior to hiring an employee. Search for history of gambling, drug problems, debt or other factors that might pressure him to pilfer. Determine the potential employees' behavior and work attitude through his references from past employment. You must provide full disclosure of this beforehand not only because the law requires it from employers. Also, this eliminates the perception that the company does not implement strict measures for preventing and dealing with employment theft.

2. Implement data and office area access restrictions. The FBI also suggests that being lenient with employee access to classified data and other valued properties provide opportunity for stealing. Limit the right to open or use company files, storage facilities and computer data to those who need it. Do not grant access of company development plans, to those in the sales or customer service department. .

3. Watch employees from a distance. Sometimes, employees need to know that someone is watching them to keep them from doing a wrong move. Using internet protocol (IP) cameras allow employers and managers to record and monitor stealing occurrences and people's productivity at work even if you're at another location.
Prevent, Employee Thefts.

4. Restrict unauthorized websites. With the use of Web filters, you can restrict the company's Internet access to certain gaming and gambling websites, as well as social sites like Facebook or Twitter. Through this, you are already controlling employees from robbing you off the time you pay them for work-related tasks.

5. Avoid workers from bringing out items from office/ company premises. Results from the 24th annual Retail Theft Survey carried out by inventory- a protection consulting firm showed that for every retail company, one out of 36 employees was caught pilfering in 2011. The total value stolen in that year amounted to more than $47 million in the retail business. The radio frequency identification system RFID is one of several types of wireless security systems that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from the products' RFID tags to readers and enables easy tracking and retail inventory. .

6. Prevent Company Data Piracy. According to a recent survey conducted by Iron Mountain, employees are more susceptible to steal data when he leaves the company. To avoid this, one must establish and implement strict policies of confidentiality, as well as those regarding accessing, transferring, and handling information. There are also online sources on information safety that suggest the restriction of using portable devices. Constantly changing a company's online accounts like those for cloud data storage also blocks employees from accessing data after termination. .
