    How to Handle Employees Who Steal?
    I have found myself, more than once, in shock at business owners who hold clear evidence of employee theft, but the business owner continues to keep the thieving employees. I worked for one particular company who told me to watch certain employees because they steal. The owner went as far as saying that he talked to those employees about stealing, but they continue to steal. Why would any business owner keep an employee who, in fact, steals?

    In my previous job I encountered employee thefts just as you have mentioned. The reason why these employees were not fired was because it was a small family owned business, where the employees in question where essential to the day to day operations of the business. The way the employer solved this issue was to install security cameras everywhere and have the employees sign a paper that said any theft will result in the amount of the theft being taken out of that employees check.

    In my opinion, it would definitely be a fire and it would be taken of their check for sure.

    It's definitely a fire if you have employees that are stealing. The business owner must be out of his mind or its some sort of stipulation that they keep the certain people employed.

    I never thought that there would be bosses or companies like this, and hearing this makes me think that they must be terribly understanding and it must be great to work for them, but honestly I agree with you that it would only be good for the employees but terrible for the owner and the business itself. I have faced the same situation myself in the short time I've been operating a retail business from home, and let go of the employees immediately as I find it hard to trust them after an incident like this and I really don't know how to carry on a business relationship without trust.

    That's a nice boss to have, and what if the employees actually steal something that is confidential or important to the company? I think it would be better if the boss can warn the related employees about their wrongdoings and get the local authorities involved when it happen again. Or keep track of how much they are stealing, and cut off exactly that amount from their monthly salaries. This should get the message across.

    A lot of times when employees steal and bosses do nothing about it, it's because that employee and the boss have a special relationship for example an affair could be occurring between said employee and employer and you are hardly going to fire that person are you! It's when personal relationships get in the way of work that these things thrive. At the end of the day theft is a crime and why would keep a criminal hired? Sadly things like this can lead to the shutdown of businesses as they lose too many assets or lose customer trust and this hurts everyone because one employee couldn't just be happy with what they had or the employer couldn't separate home life and work.

    What's the point of keeping them? They already showed who they really are, and that's me in the boss' position I would fire that employee right away. Those kind of employees are bad for business and earning your boss' trust can be really hard. Once the trust is broken, it'll be hard for the boss' to trust that particular employee or other innocent employees will also look bad to his eyes.
    That's not a very good judgement in the boss' side for keeping those guys.

    I would never keep an employee that steals company property. I mean a person who can easily take something that doesn't belong to him/her without being ashamed of it probably has some serious mental issues or absolutely no morals. Those people are simply too unreliable to let them work in your business.

    In my opinion if there's clear evidence of an employee stealing there should be only one option, fire them. Considering the employment market today it wouldn't take long to find another employee who would be grateful for the opportunity. It is a clear breach of trust and frankly keeping an employee like that is incredibly strange to me, how could you ever trust that person to represent you and your business let alone the financial loss.
