But our hot-button issues don’t stop there. We take a detour to the bustling world of retail, specifically scrutinizing the recent controversy surrounding Lululemon’s stringent theft policy. What happens when a laudable goal to curtail theft clashes with employee safety and rights? Kaitlyn offers her legal insight and we unpack the startling statistic of a $94.5 billion annual shrink rate, grappling with the cost of theft, fraud, and employee errors on retailers.
