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.
