The CEO of a nonprofit contacted us over a weekend to report that it had just determined that a long-term, valued employee had embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars.
First, we advised the client on the immediate suspension and then termination of the employee’s employment. We assisted the client with notifying all the relevant stakeholders – the board of directors, major funders, and insurance carriers. We helped the client recoup funds the former employee had given to third parties. Finally, we worked with law enforcement and federal authorities to assist with the employee’s prosecution and restitution to the organization.
