How to handle accusation of theft-cleaning service
Whether you clean a business or residence, accusation of theft can happen and when it does, it can be very tense and frustrating.
It is always best to prevent the possibility of theft from happening by selecting employees through a thorough background check.
But things can happen and when it happens how should you handle the situation?
First, if you are innocent, stay cool. If you work for a cleaning contracting company as an employee, call the manager right away without delay. Let your supervisor or manager handle the situation.
If you are the owner of a small cleaning service company and you are innocent, stay cool. Ask calmly what item(s) have disappeared and what evidence do they have.
If you are innocent, you should clearly state that you are not the one who has taken the items. If they are still accusing you as a thief, you might have to get the police to investigate the matter and you should call your lawyer as soon as possible.
If you are a supervisor, manager or owner of a cleaning service business and one of your employees is being accused of theft, talk to him or her privately and hear out the details without accusation. Let him know that you will get back to him after hearing the details from the customer first.
Whatever happens, if you or your employee is innocent, do not get overly upset and ruin the relationship with your customer. Stay calm and work to keep the good relationship with your customer. When proven innocent, events like this can strengthen your relationship with your customer because now your customer has built up a greater trust with your company.
