"Embezzlers often don't take any time off because obscuring these schemes from prying eyes is a full-time job. If an embezzler is out of the office when someone begins wondering where a certain amount of money went, there's nobody there to cover it up. Every company should force employees to go on vacation and disconnect. Because that's when all of a sudden, if you're not there to cover up something, then it comes to light," Sarah Santos says.
