Prosecuting an Employee for Embezzlement

Those of you who attended my course on Loss Prevention at the recent AAOphthalmology conference in Las Vegas will find this article of particular interest.  It describes how one independent optometry practice successfully prosecuted an employee for embezzlement.

The takeaways from the article should not be the complexity of the legal process and the length of time it took to complete it.  The most important message is that substandard accounting procedures and an overly trusting work environment often tempt honest people beyond their ability to resist.

ADG&A clients are encouraged to regularly review their accounting processes and loss prevention strategies with a competent professional.  If you have not done so in a while, now might be a good time to do so.
