Do I owe my boss money?

Question:

I work in an American company where the post is unreliable.
A client sent some goods back by post (which we don’t usually use).
I accepted the parcel but only afterwards did I realise that the box had a hole.
I could have still run after the postman but I thought that I’ll anyway be too late as I signed the acceptance letter and I wasn’t sure there was nothing in it.
After opening the box (after an hour), it was confirmed that the goods were stolen.
Am I obligated to pay my employer for the stolen goods?

Answer:

Answer from Horav Yosef Fleishman shlit”a
