    My initial advice would be to contact the local authorities and make them aware. Secondly, I would contact your attorney and review civil strategies such as a demand to return company property.

    Would it be fair to say that these notes were done by the the employee during the course of his employment and on behalf of the company?
    Yes, the notes were done by the employee, during the course of his employment and on behalf of the company.

    For what it's worth: I just heard from our attorney who advised me to contact ex-employee directly and invite him to immediately return the notes otherwise we will take legal action.

    Thanks.

    We terminated an employee last week, provided a nice severence-pay and paid an extra month of health insurance. This morning while another employee was opening the doors; the terminated employee snuck into an open door and removed a stack of technical notes, drawings, etc. from the building. Most of these notes were made by the terminated employee during his employment here (11+ years), and could be utilized to duplicate products that we manufacture.

    Is this considered to be theft? What are our options at this point?

    Thanks.
