Stop Theft of Employer Property by Employees

Key Points

  • Implement security measures specifically targeted toward the type of theft that the employer is trying to prevent.
  • For company property, limit access to such property to only those employees that require it to perform their work-related duties. Also, take regular inventory of company property to determine whether any items are missing or have been stolen.
  • When employees have access to proprietary information, it could be easy for an employer to lose the rights to its own trade secrets and intellectual property if it fails to take proper protective measures, such as utilizing nondisclosure agreements.
