Employee Theft 2021 - 23 March 2021 (On Demand)


Prevention, Detection, and Disciplinary Action

Employee theft can lead a business into financial ruin. Research shows that one third of bankruptcies are the result of employee theft. Make sure your business does not lose everything to employee theft!

As New Zealand continues to face economic disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees are financially strained, and desperation can lead to theft. Most theft is to fund an addiction – and in the past 12 months addiction has increased in New Zealand.

Employee theft is a major problem in New Zealand, and one of the most serious threats a business will face. Most managers do not know what to look for to prevent the problem, or what to do if it does occur.

Taking disciplinary action can feel like a daunting task - especially given the significant number of cases where employers have been stung for failing to follow proper process.

Join us for this practical webinar to discover the clear warning signs before theft occurs, and the legal process for investigating serious misconduct.

This webinar will empower you and your staff to act quickly and effectively if the problem does arise.
