Employee theft and dishonesty pose major problems for employers. While employers are, of course, aware of the cost implications for them of such misbehavior, employees are properly concerned with being designated a thief. Obviously, obtaining future employment is almost an impossibility if an employee is terminated for that reason. This article reviews 108 arbitration awards covering over ten years, in order to develop a framework for understanding employee/employer issues in theft and dishonesty cases.
