I need to respond to this in 300-400 words in A.P.A. format with references
Dave has really ruined his career and reputation. Working as the COO of a nonprofit, CareED’s, Dave has been caught double dipping. Dave has been embezzling money from the organization for years to maintain a certain lifestyle he and his family has come accustom too (Cafferky, 2012). He was recently caught by his son’s university when one of the university bookkeepers found it odd that the semester’s tuition was paid for from an organizations check. Now Dave has been confronted and the board is determining the proper actions to take. Dave seems legitimate in his apologizes to the board and workmates. As an outside management consultant, it would be my advice to fire Dave from his position immediately and set a payment plan to repay the organization back with interest. Dave’s punishment of repayment, embarrassment, and termination would be enough for Dave to reconsider embezzling again. As the consultant, I believe it would benefit the organization greater if Dave was about to work to pay back the organization than it would be for his to be publicly humiliated and go to prison. If he is in prison he cannot work to pay back the organization. An employer must have research and have proof of ground to fire an employee (Davis, 2006). Dave’s confession is all which is needed in order to fire him. Sadly, Dave even though depicted as a kind and hard-working man temptation still overtook him to steal. This action cannot go unnoticed for the safety of the organization’s well-being.
