Two shift managers at Fox-Wizel who are accused of stealing NIS 543,000 from the clothing chain will reimburse NIS 12,000. The two have been fired.
The reimbursement followed a compromise agreement between the former shift managers and Fox-Wizel management, which is however still complaining to the police about the embezzlement.
The compromise agreement is subject to approval by the Haifa Magistrates Court. Fox-Wizel sued the employees after evidence of their wrongdoing was recorded on closed circuit cameras installed next to the cash registers. The two stole cash and merchandise over a period of two years.
According to the claims against them, the workers pocketed cash from sales that they didn't record into the register - and they were systematic about it, failing to register sales several times per shift. They underwent lie detector tests, and admitted to the charges against them.
Over a one-year period during which the two were under surveillance, losses at the Carmiel store reached NIS 660,000, while the average annual netloss in the entire chain totaled NIS NIS 116,000.
