    Answered . If you are the manager or owner of the company, cancel the credit card or discount card if it was charged to the company rather than merely used to secure a discount at Costco or BJ and the like, but paid for by the individual using his own credit/debit card.

    Re-emphasize the policy, which should be contained in the Company's Employee Manual.


    Seek repayment and/or consent to deduct the amount owed from the employee's next pay check.

    Consider the value of this employee to the company and whether or not their are grounds to fire the employee based upon the actions of that employee. If you need to talk to an employment attorney, I can refer you to two or more.
