Ok but what about the outstanding balance? If the company recovers this money where does it go? I'm sure it won't be into my bank account.

Unfortunate or convenient for someone higher up?

the employee claimed he was following orders.

It's not clear to me if the employee was pocketing the money, or just re-writing losses. Both are bad, but the former of course is much worse.

It said in a separate statement last week that the employee claimed he was following orders.

It sounds like he might have been Epsteined.

OK - serious question:

If someone commits suicide at home, the resale value of the property takes a real hit. People don't want to move into a house where a suicide has occurred in case of evil spirits, bad luck, etc.

This poor soul ended it in a hotel room. What happens to the business? Is the room let at reduced rates, or do they just keep quiet and not let future guests know? Or do they take a leaf out of the train people's book and bill the surviving family for damages?
