Upon violating company terms and conditions, Chase initially presented resignation letter in April which Robert declined finding out all her embezzlement.
Robinson was earning an impressive amount of revenue from the job as she was receiving a six-digit number of $300,000. Earning such money, she overused some of the company assets by spending on expensive hotels, traveling, and restaurants.
As per court documents, she reportedly spent $32,000 for Ubers and taxis, $8,923.20 at Dean and Deluca and $12,696.65 at Madison Avenue Restaurant over two year period.
Besides, the accusations state Robinson used standard Netflix queue watching Arrested Development, Friends, Schitt's Creek breaking the work ethics.
The company claims Robinson watched fifty-five episodes of 'Friends' over four days in January, twenty episodes of 'Arrested Development' and ten episodes of 'Schitt's Creel' in March.
Watching shows on Netflix was not in any way part of or related to the duties and responsibilities of Robinson's employment and, on information and belief, was done for her personal entertainment, amusement, and pleasure at times when she was being paid to work.
Besides, Robinson allegedly used $3 million of Niro's flyer miles for her trips, vacations, and transferred 5 million miles to her account, which estimated the value of $125,000.
