I will say large business like a Publix, Home Depot, or whatever seem to do this much better than small time business owners. They also have a human resource dept where people are working full time on this specific issue and know how to 'play the game'
I know a guy who worked for a large national company, very large corporation with not only a human resource department but a large legal department as well. They did everything to cover their bases. He was fired for theft, the company filed a police report and he was charged with theft and credit card fraud. He pled guilty to the charges. The state still allowed him to collect for 18 months.
