Is it legal for an employer to not file an insurance claim for theft and charge the employee's on duty?

Question Details: I'm not sure if my employer has insurance against theft but he charges the employee's when a customer steals. Wouldn't it be neglectful for the employer to not have insurance for that if he has had a few of these instances in the past year alone? Is it fair to charge the employee for someone running out?
