A Wall Street bond trader turned on the television one day and saw a news report accusing him of committing a large securities scam. This trader learned that his employer had accused him of creating $300 million of phony profits and, as a result, getting bogus bonuses of $8 million. He claimed he was innocent, and it took about three years for him to prove his innocence. In the months that followed the accusations, he was investigated by the SEC, the National Association of Securities Dealers, and the Justice Department. Three years later, the bond trader was cleared of all major charges brought against him.

You are a manager for a large department store. It has recently come to light that a receiving clerk has been stealing merchandise. About $5,000 has been stolen. The clerk has stopped stealing, and the faulty internal control weaknesses that were determined to have allowed the fraud have been fixed. No action has been taken yet to punish the perpetrator, who still works at his same job. The clerk happens to be the nephew of one of the other managers, who, while he understands that his nephew's behavior was unacceptable, would like to keep the theft relatively quiet.

  • 1. What action, if any, should be taken against the receiving clerk in this situation? What consequences will probably result from that action?
