Hello This is my first post on this forum. I am looking for advice on a difficult situation. I am the owner of a shop and have recently discovered that my manager and to be honest my best and most trusted employee has been repeatedly stealing from the till over the past 4 months. He has been going to great lengths to cover his tracks but he is unaware that I have technology in place that has now exposed his stealing. I can only go back four months but it started small and has accelerated to now taking as much on a weekly basis as on monthly to start with. I am extremely disappointed in this person. He is eastern european and started off at the bottom in my shop and through hard work and showing a care and keen interest in the business worked his way up to manager. I have invested a lot of my personal and business time training and upskilling this person and his wages were also upgraded significantly throughout his development. I am now left with the prospect of confronting him and us parting company. Any advice would be appreciated. We as a company have very good hr policy and exiting him in a professional and legal manner is not my concern. I am just interested in learning more on this problem as it is the first time I have encountered it. Looking forward to some feedback as this is undoubtedly a significant problem for small cash businesses.
