Can an employer press charges against an employee for state assistance fraud? Posted on August 02, 2011

an employer has told an employee that they could press charges against them for state assistance fraud that had nothing to do with the employer (pay stubs were altered on a case that only used the employee's income information. Employee only helps paying the state assistance applicant pay their bills). This assistance is NOT given to the employee but to a person that lives with them. The employer is now claiming the employee has stolen money from the company by making false invoices for customers to pay, which is entirely not the truth. These allegations stem from "missing invoices" that were never paid upon and do not exist. Employee offered to take a lie detector test to prove to employer that there has been no wrong doing on their part. This is in Mississippi, is any of this legal?
