Your civil liability may depend on negligence theory. In other words, what were your duties, whether you acted with required standard of care while performing your duties or breached such standards, whether your employer lost money, your negligence was the actual and proximate cause of the employer’s loss? Simply put, you need to review the scope of your duties outlined in the bank’s manual and make sure you acted properly and according to your stated duties in the manaul. Because they will prove the other way around that you had certain duties, you breached those duties, they lost money and you caused their loss.
Because the employer potentially may press criminal charges against you through the district attorney, I would strongly suggest you retain an attorney to make sure your rights will not be violated and prevent any such allegations with severe consequences. Good luck. Zaher Fallahi, Attorney, CPA (Bothe California).
