Webinar: ID# 1020193
Recorded CD
About This Course:
The cost of employee theft and its drain upon all organizations - not only in dollars but also in time, effort, employee morale and client confidence - cannot be understated. Theft manifests itself in a variety of ways, it is not limited solely to inventory, but can encompass misappropriation of supplies, false expense reports, information and even theft of time.

It is critical for all employers, regardless of size, to have a cohesive, predetermined approach to minimizing employee misappropriation, as well as a comprehensive plan to respond to theft when it occurs.

This webinar helps employers develop a system for minimizing, detecting and responding to employee misappropriation, considering the legal and practical implications of developing such a system. While different employers will need to take various factors into consideration to tailor a program that best fits their organizations, this class will help identify issues employers should consider to develop the right program for themselves.
