Worker and staff theft in the Philippines is extremely common. The biggest problem I find is that there is very little logic or forward thinking relating to consequences. To the point sometimes people may become angry for being caught.
But it can be the maid stealing the odd bag of rice to a chef cooking food in your restaurant with their own ingredients to avoid detection pocketing the money for the sales. Whatever it is you have to be aware trust should always be earned not just given. In many cases people expect to be searched and drug tested. If you don’t its often seen as more of an opportunity than being given a position of trust.
After 8 years in the Philippines very little amazes me in what people get up to in stealing things as its almost become normal to do so. Especially with some family members who will encourage their children etc. to commit the crime.
