How is the employee responsible if someone steals his or her laptop? I think all office equipment shall be insured and the company shall seek a claim from the insurance company.

The domestic enquiry will look into this aspect of negligence.
A thing get stolen only when there is neglect in keeping laptop securely.
Any employee can sell his laptop and claim it was stolen.
Circumstances of loss needs to be brought out before attrgibutability of blame comes up.

#AnonymousDon’t you guys insure company assets? Check with your finance department and claim for insurance. That’s how ethical and progressive companies handle issues in these kind of eventualities

Responsibility is fair and square on employee.
Insurance is protection that is all.
