    Action against theft in the office?

    I own a private company. Recently it has come to my notice that there had been theft of certain documents from the company office. Few employees have reported that they are unable to find certain important files which they kept in the company's chamber last night. What should I do now? What action can I take against this theft?

    Hello ,
    This is a very serious matter which has to rooted down and got to the very bottom .
    If there is a theft of IMP documents within the company , it may lead to drastic results .

    You should start taking some measurements right now ::

    * Address the whole company including everyone single person who is present that the act of stealing documents will not be tolerated .

    * Reassure them that who ever is behind this shameful act will be caught and punished to the highest level .

    * Start a enquiry into the matter and leave no one to be fully verified to be clean . It is matter of great concern to the company as an employee is trying to steel documents .

    * Sugguest to everyone that if any one has a clue or suspects of the act should come forward as action will be taken on everyone .





    Except this , you should prevent future mishaps like this as your strategies and plans can be disclosed to the competitors .

    You should install cameras in various positions and monitoring systems to
    check the important and relevant things at work .
    Call a meeting of your trusted staff members and discuss the matter throughly regarding what would have been the
    motive behind this and various threats with the act .

    I hope you are able to do what is needed and come out of it well .
    thank you .

    Hello,

    I think this your fault because important files you can save in your personal system also.
    You can check the CC Cameras and find out the last night what happen.
    You can find them , go for police station and complain.
    But you can collect the company important files and save them.

    so you can immediately action to the your employees.

    Thanks!!!

    GOOD LUCK............

    Hello,

    First you should talk to your employess and see wheather they know anything about the
    incident or not. If you think they are telling you truth then you would lodge a FIR to a near
    by Police Station. By the way if you suspect anybody you should talk to him or her immediately.
    If the person does not want to reveal anything to you then it's high time to call the cops.

    Bye,

    Hi aspirant

    This is a very serious matter and you should definitely take some strict action in this regard and that too as soon as possible. You should not let the culprit roam free and certainly find him out and then give him a severe punishment as he deserves. He should be brutally punished for committing such a crime as stealing the company's important files and documents. You should first try to find out who the culprit is by employing the best possible means at your disposal.

    I am sure you have some CCTV cameras in your office building. You can use the footage from them as the means of finding a clue for your important files being stolen. I am sure with that you can definitely trace your culprit. Report to the police as any of your employees clould have done it and he should not be able to escape. Also interrogate every employee separately to find osme clue to this mystery.

    I am sure with these measures you will be definitely able to solve this problem and thus able to find your important files. Good luck

    HELLO SIR...!!
    First of all you see to whom the files are important other than you..or the people who get profit with those files. Then see which employees in your office are familiar with those people.This can be done by keeping secret cameras or chip in your office under the table of the person on whom you are having some doubt.By this you can know that culprit.
    But if you don't want to happen again in future, then you must have secret cameras, microphone etc connected in your office. And also you have to maintain some very trustable persons in your office as employees, so that they can spy in your office.
    This type of incidents can also happen if the boss is not having good charecter or not friendly..SORRY sir...this is not to blame you.But iam just saying the possibilities.
    so please be friendly with the employees so that they can expose their real charecter towards you.


    THANK YOU SIR..HOPE YOU HAVE GOT SOME ANSWERS...!!
