What do I have to do to get the information I need regarding ?

I work for a non-profit and the former treasurer had an invoice modified she also worked for the company that a machine was rented from stating that her commission was taken to pay for a part of the rental. She had written out a check and signed it herself for reimbursement from the non-profit. I got as far as getting information that the company she works or formally worked for does not typically take commissions and that the original invoice had been modified by the former treasurer to state commission was taken. The company had stated that they do not give out information of employees. I just need to know weather or not commission was taken and if so the exact amount. The former treasurer is not longer with us because she had been taking money from the non profit and currently I am trying to verify exactly how much was taken.

The only way to get the information is to sue: the only way to force someone to provide information or documentation is to file a lawsuit and in the litigation use the legal mechanisms of "discovery" (e.g. subpoenas, document production requests, written interrogatories or questions) to get it. You can sue the former treasurer if you believe she took money improperly, even if you don't know the exact amount yet; you can then issue a subpoena in the lawsuit to the company to get the information and documentation you seek.
