Please write a 500-word paper answering the following ethics issue:
You are a CPA and you are hired by Company A to look into a bookkeeper’s work that the owner of the company suspects may be committing embezzlement against his company. You researched the records and found out for a fact that the bookkeeper has embezzled money from the company. You provide indisputable proof to the owner and she decides to fire the bookkeeper but not press any criminal or civil charges against the bookkeeper.
Six months later you go out to another client and find out that the bookkeeper fired from Company A is now the bookkeeper for Company B. As a CPA, what do you do? Please explain your reasoning for your response.
Remember, you are a CPA and must follow ethics, confidentiality, and fiduciary guidelines.
