What Happens in Vegas Doesn’t
Always Stay in Vegas
Your company sent Raymond, its top sales executive, on a four-day business trip to Las Vegas. After work on the second day, Raymond visited a licensed brothel in a nearby town after work and charged the “fees” to the company credit card. It is against company policy for employees to use the company credit card for personal, non-business purchases.
Later that evening, Raymond was arrested and incarcerated for being under the influence of illegal controlled substances. As a result, he missed a meeting with important clients. The clients withdrew a large account, which cost your company thousands of dollars in lost revenue.
How should you handle this issue?
Terminate the employee for being under the influence of drugs and getting arrested.
Terminate the employee for visiting a brothel.
Terminate the employee for charging unauthorized, non-business related expenses on the company credit card and for missing the meeting with important clients.
