I’m a franchise store owner and my store is inside the mall. I just want to ask what is the next step regarding my 2 staff stealing money in my store. Recently I check my bank account where they deposit their daily sales. Apparently there are some missing daily sales that were not deposited in the bank account. It was between October 2015 up to December 2015 that there are one or two days that it was not deposited. I conducted first a initial investigation on January 6, 2016 to ask them since the latest missing daily sales was December 29, 2015. They couldn’t tell me where daily sales went. They claimed that they deposited it in the bank but they can't produce a copy of the deposit slip and they said maybe they lost it. I told them even if you lost the deposit slip it doesn’t matter as long as it will appear and got credited on my bank account, I even show them the passbook. i wrote a memo to them that I will do a complete investigation on all missing sales deposit and I let them sign and also memo regarding their salary to be hold until my investigation completed. I also ask them to make a statement / explanation on the particular daily sales that went missing. I got their both statements but nobody claim responsible for the missing daily sales. Upon my own investigation I got a direct evidence that my 2 staff is really stealing money from the store since its them two and the bank where the only person who handles the daily sales money no one else even me I don’t touch the money until it got deposited in the bank. As far as i know regarding labor law do I need to show and inform them all the evidence I gather against them and suspend them personally and in writing and give them 15 days to respond in writing to explain / defend their self regarding my accusations or I will go directly to the police and file a complaint or I go to the lawyer first?
