Well, he did say the employee was "in the US" so probably beyond the
reach of those statutes.

I doubt there's a theft act offence: no section 15A ("obtaining a
money transfer by deception") since there doesn't appear to be a
deception - and even if there was, if the employer thinks they are
acting honestly then they don't have the necessary mens rea. There's
certainly no section 1 offence because you can't "steal" a bank
