When is stealing not stealing?

Postby 3.14 » Thu Jan 12, 2017 2:42 pm

So, when is stealing not stealing? When is breaching company policy around honesty and theft/unauthorised removal of company property not gross misconduct and a breach of trust? When the employer is TESCO. Seems to me TESCO got shafted here, what do you think?

Is it acceptable for a security manager to act like this?

A. This is an Irish case.

B. The intention permanently to deprive was missing - he returned the item to the store the following day, as he always intended.

A. This is an Irish case.

and therefore the law may very easily be different.
This is now statute law
