Workplaces are far from perfect. Nearly every work environment has something go unexpectedly wrong at one moment or another. Employees and customers can get aggressive, a business' building may become structurally unsound, or a company may go out of business. Yet, perhaps no other type of workplace incident garners the amount of attention as alleged theft. Such allegations are serious, and could severely damage an accused individual's life.
Individuals, organizations and corporations are protective of their money. So, when funds go missing or are paid out in a suspicious way, they quickly take note and seek to get to the bottom of the matter. Their investigation and thirst for justice can lead to federal charges and the potential for harsh penalties and long-term consequences.
