Oh, yeah. They'd no doubt lie during the interview: "Of course I'll turn in loose money if I find it somewhere."

During my college years and a bit after I was in retail management. I became quite cynical quickly regarding the honesty of others and figured out that a majority of people will take anything if they think they will get away with it. You had to be on your toes with your employees or they would rob your blind. The customers were not much better. There were countless people that my staff and myself caught in the act who you would never dream would do something like that. And they usually felt they were justified in doing what they did with questionable logic at best.

And after reading the comments in this thread most people on here prove that assessment years ago was correct.

They would need to do an audit of the cash registers and try to determine if it came out of one of those, then they would need to place it in lost and found for a period of time to see if the owner claims it. If not, then some stores will donate unclaimed money to a charity. But it's not appropriate for an employee to snatch the money, not tell anyone, and not report it.
She already knows she shouldn’t have taken it, what is the point of belaboring whether or not she should have done something that is already past? She picked it up in an impulsive moment and has regretted it ever since. It doesn’t help for people to call her a thief and keep berating her.

I haven't been posting to her. It's the rest of you.

Not speaking of other states now, just Ohio. If I am working at Joe's drugstore and find a $50.00 bill on the floor where the public has access, the store/joe has no legal claim over it, it is mine, regardless of company policy to the contrary if it exists.

Not discussing any potential employment discipline now, just the law.

It should be distributed to CVS shareholders, in proportion to the # of shares they own.

I'm not calling the OP a thief but if I was the OP, I would have just handed the $100.00 in the avoid having a guilty conscience. They don't know if the money fell out of the register or it belonged to a customer.

Either way, what's done is done.

I have often wondered myself -- what percentage of people have integrity (doing the honorable thing when no one is looking or without fear of consequences). The thing to be careful is inferring from a subset of the population, i.e., are shoplifters more likely to seek employment in retail so retail has a higher population of employee theft, just like pedophiles seek employment in childcare and education.

I fear people who are so inclined, assume everyone else would do the same thing to justify their actions or no one is trustworthy.

OP this has been a good topic for discussion.

The management of that particular store is responsible for what goes in that store. Not the CEO or shareholders. There is a chain of command in place to deal with this sort of thing. Pretty obvious I would think but apparently not to everyone.
