It certainly seems like your boss is being incredibly insensitive. After reviewing your post, I do not see how it was your fault that money went to the wrong location. Since this matter has been reported to the proper authorities, I am surprised that an insurance claim was not put in with regards ***** ***** money that was lost.I would try to sit down with her again and tried to hash out the bonus and salary review issue it would be one thing if you knowingly new what you were doing. It also was not your fault that the email server was hacked.
The reason why you probably have not heard from the FBI is that I am sure the people that did this are located halfway across the world.
Unfortunately, you are kind of stuck in a tough spot. Legally there is nothing that can done with regards ***** ***** and bonuses unless you have an employment contract that specifically states terms regarding salary and bonuses. I am going to guess that you do not have an employment contract because most people do not have them and are in fact at will employees.Other than looking for new employment, a resolution has to be reached at this point. It certainly is not fair for her to keep this hanging over your head for ever, what the FBI said was absolutely correct, cyber crimes such as these are incredibly prevalent now and almost impossible to defend without having strong security measures in place. If she was my client I would tell her that there was nothing that can be done and she has to chalk it up as a learning experience.
