Don't face embezzlement charges without a strong defense

If your employer has entrusted you with keeping the books or managing the financial accounts of his or her business, you may have felt honored with the level of trust imparted to you.

Results have indicated that unconscious beliefs and social stereotypes can affect judgment even in contradiction with expressed beliefs.
