  • Theft at work

    Good morning, I had something stolen out of my bag in the tea area at work last week, now you ask why is my bag in the tea area well this is because this is where the companyís wants us to keep it. Now the thing that is really pushing my buttons is that the item that was taken was a pair of sunglasses that I had got for Fatherís Day now these were not cheap,(I donít care about the money just the glasses) but the company are saying that I shouldnít have bought them to work and itís my fault they were taken, any advice on what I can do now?

    Unfortunately given the circumstances you have described in your post then you I do not think you can hold your employer responsible for the theft of the sunglasses. That said if there has been a spate of thefts of employee property and the company has failed to take appropriate action to deal with it then liability may arise.¬*
    I do my best to provide good practical advice, however I do so without liability.
    If you have any doubts then do please seek professional legal advice.
