In order for you to prove your employee has embezzled funds, you must have
four factors in your case. These factors are as follows:
- A fiduciary relationship between yourself and your employee
- Employee must have acquired the property through the relationship
- Employee must have taken ownership of the property or transferred the property
to someone else
- Employee’s actions were intentional
If you can prove all of the above, you have a good chance of successfully
pursuing a case against your embezzling employee.
Types of Embezzlement
Embezzlement can come in a surprising amount of forms. Some employees will
take a significant sum of money or resources at once, while others will
squirrel away small amounts over a longer period of time. This can look
like fraudulent billing, records falsification, Ponzi schemes, payroll
checks to fake employees, and so on.
