Jeanette Taylor, 47, a former Walmart cashier, has been accused of stealing more than $50,000 from the company. She was arrested Thursday afternoon after admitting openly that she had taken money from time to time from the cash registers when she was working.
Taylor, working for a Louisville, Kentucky Walmart, admitted to police she had taken money “once or twice” from her registers over a period of a few months. After her admission, Walmart officials added the numbers and later returned with an accusation totaling a sum of over $50,000 missing from Taylor’s registers. Taylor is now facing a felony charge with 5 to 10 years in prison.
Want to ensure that you’re hiring honest employees? Converus has the solution: EyeDetect is a screening technology that assesses the trustworthiness and personal integrity of individuals. It detects deception by measuring involuntary eye behavior during an automated, 30-minute true/false test. (Note: The Employee Polygraph Protection Act prohibits using lie detectors like EyeDetect in private companies in the U.S. However, U.S. federal, state and municipal government employees or contractors may be tested.)
