I have an ex-employee that worked for me for 2 years. He

I have an ex-employee that worked for me for 2 years. He recently gave a 2 week notice. During his tenor at my company, he worked in one of my 3 buildings. His office was where I had my original desk, and my bottom drawer was locked. I lost the key. A year ago the employee asked if he could use the drawer for his area and to store work files. I told the employee I lost the key to the drawer and its been years. A couple of months later I was visiting the building and the employee informed me that he was able to open the drawer. I asked him how he opened it up, he said he just used a plastic card. I said okay, I'll come in this weekend and clear out the drawer for you. Well I forgot to go back and clean it out. A month ago my office manager noticed the desk area had been cleaned as this is where I also kept my personal family pictures even though I hadn't been at the desk for over a year. She left a note for this employee want to know where all my items had gone. The employee said that he had placed everything in 2 small boxes and placed them on the shelf. The employee then used my previously locked drawer and placed his pendeflex files in the drawer and took the pictures off the desk and also placed them on the bookcase. The employees position was that as the supervisor of that building that he needed an area to place work documents and since I his manager no longer worked in the building and seemed to have no objection of the drawer being opened took it upon himself to clean out my previous desk, mind you I have not worked there for 17 months and I did say I would come back and clean out the drawer and never did. My question is, I believe in that drawer I had left some money. After the employee left and I went through the boxes I could not find the money, which I believed I left in the drawer. I don't have any proof as it was placed there 10 years ago. What is your advice. The employee no longer works for the company.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: no, not yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
