Summary

The owners of Sisley Italian Kitchen in Sherman Oaks, California named Jamie and Francine Alba enlist Charles Stiles to help get to the bottom of a revenue discrepancy that may or may not involve their bookkeeper Pamela. She was caught coming to work... (more) late, making personal phone calls, and sleeping on the job, but is actually honest in reporting a cash discrepancy to the manager. The Mystery Diners then point to bigger problems with the manager Mike, who is actually behind the discrepancy, by stealing paychecks that were supposed to be paid to a window washing service that was told by Mike that their services were no longer needed and running a scam by hiring his friend Hector Rodriguez as a busboy without Jamie and Francine's consent. During the confrontation, Mike claimed that he did nothing wrong and plans to pay them back. Jamie and Francine fire Mike (who was taking advantage of Pamela) on the spot and has him tell Hector that he is also fired. Jamie and Francine tell Charles that they will also suspend Pamela instead of firing her. The narrator revealed that Mike and Hector have stopped collecting paychecks. Pamela returned to her job following her suspension. The window cleaning service was rehired.
