It isn't a "Cost Of Doing Business", it's theft
Most organizations are vulnerable to embezzlement from a dishonest employee. A retail establishment is especially vulnerable because of the high volume of cash passing through the business.
There are three (3) main areas where a retail establishment is vulnerable;
Theft of cash
Unauthorized write off of bills
"Phantom" merchandize returns
To fight this, many cash registers or POS systems require a PIN or a swipe card to tie the transaction to the employee. That's fine as far as it goes but both are vulnerable to copying, sharing or theft.
