    This would depend on the terms of your employment contract. If the contract states that the material prepared by you is the company's property, your act would be akin to destroying company property. If the material you prepared is IP-related, the general rule is that such material is also owned by the company if you were hired to produce such material and it was done in the course of your employment. The relevant punishment should be laid out in your contract as well
