Facing Employee Theft Charges

Employee theft is treated as a serious offense by both employers and Austin law enforcement. With that in mind, some employers may become over-zealous and mistakenly accuse employees of theft in an effort to curtail the loss of product. However, once you are charged with this offense, it will be critical for you to make as concerted a legal defense as you possibly can. The legal team at Ian Inglis Attorney at Law understands how these charges are likely to be pursued against you by Austin prosecutors and, thereby, how to best defend you against them.

Your Legal Rights Following Termination

Once you have been terminated for suspected employee theft, you should know that you still possess a number of legal rights in regards to your former employer, including rights to the following:

  • Your personal files with Human Resources
  • Refusal of a lie detector test
  • Privacy rights, though they may be limited
  • Freedom from any form of discrimination

These charges can be frightening both for the immediate potential consequences and for what they might have upon your future employment opportunities; our Austin legal team will defend you every step of the way.
