Employee theft can be embezzlement, meaning the taking of money or property that is facilitated by the person being in a position of trust that gives him or her special access to the funds or property. But employee thefts may also fall under a more general category of theft crimes.
The penalties for an employee theft conviction can vary greatly depending on the nature of the offense, the amount of money or value of goods or services involved. Fines and restitution are likely. Depending on the severity of the charge, incarceration may be a possibility.
