Proving Embezzlement

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.
