I've been at a company for 5 years that I've been trying to leave.
I've recently found a paper trail where my direct boss has been taking company funds for personal use. My manager also seems to take advantage of his position and hardly show up at the office and has cost the company money already through poorly managed projects. He has us do free work for his friends or other local businesses off the books, so he can get discounts and free services.
I don't think the owner is aware, but should I let the owner know with the proof I have? I have examples of forged accounts with fake client names, claiming there putting money into the company etc.
Part of me wants to speak up, because if I got fired for coming forward, it could be viewed as unlawful dismissal and I'd be taken care of on my way out.
How would you guys handle this?
