Guidelines on Reporting Misuse of State Property by State Employees
North Carolina General Statute § 114-15.1 creates an obligation on State employees who are informed of or have evidence of misuse of State property by a State employee to report that information within three (3) days to the reporting employee's immediate supervisor. The statute further specifies that the information must then be reported to the immediate supervisor's institutional head, and, in turn, within ten (10) days, to the director of the State Bureau of Investigation. Misuse includes such offenses as arson, attempted arson, damage of, theft from, or theft of, or embezzlement from, or embezzlement or otherwise misuse of any State-owned personal or real property.
