Ask the Expert: I'm a Small Business Owner, Do I Really Need Cameras in My Establishment?
A local small business, a boutique for high-end women’s clothing, recently had an incident of theft. An employee’s purse was in the back room, and she discovered on a break that her credit cards were missing. When she called her credit card company, she discovered that her cards were being used at a nearby Wal-Mart and the thieves charged over $4,000. The owner suspected that inventory might be missing as well, but there was no way to quickly check, or even to see who the thief was — although the boutique has cameras, they’re dummy cameras. They weren’t filming. Ask the expert: You heard a rumor about sexual harassment but no one reported it. What should you do?
