A manager took a personal grievance for unjustified dismissal, but has instead ended up facing repaying $210,000 she wrongfully paid to herself for unapproved days in lieu, plus $436,000 for misappropriated money taken via false supplier accounts.  She has also had to pay $70,000 in costs and damages.

She had worked for the employer for 13 years before her misappropriations were discovered.  The employer got the disciplinary process wrong, but no damages were awarded.
