    I have an employee that works remotely for my business, on a different property that we own. There are a few people that work there, but not many, and there is little management presence. I suspected a particular employee of time theft a few weeks ago when I was there when they were clocked in, but they were nowhere to be found, and then arrived about 30 minutes later. We have a camera system on the premises and I have recorded arrival and departure times that are, on average, about 3 hours per day less than what this person is clocked in for. I have only reviewed this month, and the total time stolen is over 40 hours. I have not yet reviewed previous months. The rough arrival and departure times have also been confirmed by others who work in that building, although casually, not in detail. The only option here is termination in my opinion, but my question is, can I legally fire this person and not pay out the last two weeks of work? Or can I only deduct the time not worked in this pay period? Any other suggestions on how to handle this one would be appreciated. – by hq overview temptinyaccount – –
