He needs to locate itemized details of the subcontractor’s job amounting to $10,750 and the facts of the check for the amount $12,750. He needs to find the facts of the $2,000 difference, if available by comparing bank statements, the accounting program, etc. I will advise him to be mindful that any information may eventually be evidence in a criminal case of employee theft/embezzlement.
