Employee theft can be a major problem for small businesses. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 75% of employees have stolen from their employer at least once, and employees steal a median of $1,000 from their employer each year. This can have serious financial consequences for small businesses, which may not have the resources to absorb such losses.
So what can small businesses do to prevent and address employee theft? One option is to hire a private investigator like ACM Investigations.
ACM Investigations has experience in conducting employee theft investigations for small businesses. We use a variety of techniques, such as surveillance, interviews, and data analysis, to gather evidence and determine the extent of the theft. We can also help small businesses implement preventive measures, such as internal controls and employee background checks, to reduce the risk of future thefts.
Here’s a case study of how ACM Investigations helped a small business owner catch an employee who was stealing:
John, the owner of a small retail store, noticed that there were discrepancies in his inventory and suspected that one of his employees was stealing. He hired ACM Investigations to conduct an employee theft investigation.
After conducting surveillance and analyzing data, ACM Investigations was able to gather enough evidence to prove that the employee was indeed stealing from the store. John was able to use this evidence to take disciplinary action against the employee and implement preventive measures to reduce the risk of future thefts.
In this case, ACM Investigations was able to help John catch the employee who was stealing and prevent future thefts from occurring.
