Employee Theft or Oversight? How can you tell?

Do your mangers know how to determine an operational error from a case of employee theft? They may not. The one real indicator between the two situations is the element of intent. An employee that is stealing intends to take merchandise or cash. An employee that makes an operational error can potentially cause the same loss, they just didn’t intend to.

 I had an internal theft case one time where the cashier was passing off merchandise to her boy friend. He would check out in her line and have a cart filled with product. She would only ring up portions of the cart.

 One day, she missed the retail anti-theft device on an item. The alarm sounded as he went out the door. Another employee went to respond and noticed that our cashier just waved him on through. That’s when I was notified.

 The cashier tracked me down to say that it was just a mistake, and how she was always trying to prevent retail theft. I knew differently.

 After reviewing video and some transactions, I noticed that there was a pattern of every Saturday morning she would pass off merchandise to him. If it weren’t for that retail anti-theft device, who knows how many more losses would have occurred.
