Last year, 528 employees stole $100,000 or more from their employer -- an 11% jump from the year before, according to research by Marquet International. "With each passing year, the embezzlement schemes we see seem to get bigger and bigger," said Christopher Marquet, the company's CEO. Employers can manage the risk of theft by conducting audits, dividing financial responsibilities among employees and requiring bookkeepers to take time off.
