All You Ever Wanted to Know About Insurance

Is there Insurance for Employee Theft?

The facts from the Chamber of Commerce: three quarters of US employees acknowledge that they have stolen from the business they have worked for. Half of those admitted to stealing multiple times, bringing related worker thefts to an estimated yearly price tag of fifty billion dollars!

Most business owners pride themselves on efficient hiring vetting, but the truth is, no one can know be sure if an employee is trustworthy or not.

NJ Commercial Bond Insurance Claims

  • Over the course of time, the bookkeeper for a gas station pilfered the business out of thousands of dollars. It was not until the manager came back from an extended holiday and discovered the employee missing that he put two and two together.
  • No one would have imagined the elderly sales clerk at the small home depot type of shop as a crook. After working at the business for just under two years, it was discovered that she had continuously written fake refund notes in order to steal from the establishment.

  • Though being a nanny certainly should entail sterling character traits, 3 babysitters of a night babysitting agency were far from honest. Items that were reported stolen from the families that employed them included a gold ring, a two-carat diamond engagement ring, a pair of diamond stud earrings and a sapphire necklace.
