Employee Theft

So how do you know if you have a thieving employee?

Thief buster checklist

  • Background check every new hire.
  • Balance every day – and chase down reasons for not balancing.
  • Track every sale back to an employee – any good point-of-sale software will let you do this.
  • Respect employees and pay above base wage.
  • Track cash and every point between the customer and your bank account.
  • No employee bags at the counter.
  • Strict refund policy requiring a form and customer ID, and your signature.
  • Change your roster regularly.
