Who was the employer? If they reported a $2000 theft to police, it should be public record. If they did not report the theft, they have no right to fire this man.

Resident, I believe it is implying that he "borrowed" the money (out of the till, perhaps) without asking.

Stupidty must be tattoed on this guy's forehead. So , he is a meeting a hooker with $2000 and what was he expecting? Either she would have taken the money at the end of their act. The only issue is he got screwed by 2 guys instead of a woman. well, we don't know if the woman was there.

@resident: What world do you live in? Since when does an employer need to file charges to fire someone? California is an "at will" state. An employer can fire you for any reason that does not violate fair employment laws (protected classes), and you can leave for any reason without prior notice. If they have reason to believe he took the money, they can fire him, unless he can prove it was for some other illegal reason. That's it. Heck, they could fire him for getting in the news for the story if they think it will make them look bad.
