Diviney Quoted in Newsday

December 26, 2018 | Employment & Labor

John Diviney was quoted in a Newsday article, “Handling embezzlement in the workplace.”

“At some point you have to think about filing charges,” says Diviney.

Diviney pointed out that in many cases that’s a viable alternative because the police and prosecutors may have better tools to handle the investigation than a company does.

Your approach depends on the amount of evidence you have, he says, noting employers sometimes have very strong evidence and can pursue criminal charges.

Regardless, you need to figure out what happened so you can stop it and prevent it from happening again, Diviney says. “Put in place procedures to minimize risk going forward,” he says.
