Living Life In all Its Splendor
Here's a question for you.If you found out a coworker was being deliberately deceitful and stealing (embezzling) from the company would you tell or choose to not get involved?
That is a tough call. It would depend on how well I knew the coworker, because I might confront them personally to get them to stop. And it would also depend on the company and how much I liked them :) Although, ultimately I think I would do something...
Okay if I knew someone was embezzling as in stealing Money. We are not talking post-it notes and pens. I would tell my boss. I understand times are tough. However I question if you confronted her what would happen.Ah I got it, go to HR and ask them hypothetical what they would think the best route would be if you found out a co-worker was embezzling. Would they want you to first confront the co-worker or mention it to them. I am a loser at this. I don't like getting people in trouble yet I dont' think stealing is right.
Embezzling- YES. I would. If the co-worker was a friend, I'd warn them first and give them a chance to quit or come clean.
I'd come forward only if I had hard evidence. Our company is employee owned which means if they steal from the company, they steal from me!
unless it directly affected me that would be a no.when they are in jail for 30 years im not going to help their kids with their homework every night, and im not helping his wife with the bills so i would have to say no
oh hell ya. embezzling is big time stealing from many people. after all its not like a stapler walking out the door.
hmmmmm - good question. I'm really not sure. Usually I choose not to get involved in that kind of stuff.
Hmm, that's a tough one. I honestly don't know.
I would report it, if not than your as guilty as the one embezzling....JMO of course
Well, since I work in HR, I would have to say yes. I would report it to someone in HR and let them deal with it along with Security. Of course since I work in HR, I'm fairly black and white when it comes to something as serious as embezzlement.
First, I'd make damned sure that this was actually happening -not sure how I'd do that but well, as long as the information on the theft involved wasn't coming to me second-hand, ya know, I guess. Then, yes, I'd report it to the HR dept or Security (whichever applies/is available) cause yes, if you know about something like that and do nothing, it is basically the same as aiding and abetting I think, isn't it?
The more and more I get older I choose NOT to get involved. Too much drama.
I would turn a blind eye. People are crazy!OR I just might snitch (anonymously of course) I'm not trying to get a cap in my ass!
Yeah. I think it depends on the severity. Huge amounts of money, I think I would report. Incidentals like office supplies, probably not.
If you are really sure this person is stealing money (and not say taking home a few pens or borrowing some equipment), then I think that you should tell someone.Besides the whole right and wrong issue, the company will have to try to get back that money somehow. And they might start with letting a few people go or cutting hours or benefits. So looking the other way might cost you your job.
Depends..will they be willing to give you a cut?
I would tell. Perhaps, I would find an anonymous way to let someone higher up know that it could possibly be going on. That way it is on their shoulders to find out & take care of it.
Okay Diva what happened to the last post?
embezzeling large sums of money or stealing a pencil sharpener? Yes for the first, no for the second. Is this a situation at your work?
Terri - No , it's not happening at my job, It is happening at a girlfriends job so we got to discussing what we would/should do.
If you know about it and don't say anything, what would be the repercussions for you? Is it a case where you could be considered an accomplice for saying nothing and not doing anything about it?
