Is employer liable for personal belongings being stolen from the workplace?

I had my personal belongings stolen from work, from an area that was supposed to be secured. Later we found out that the lock was broken. Is my employer liable in this situation?

In general, an employer may be found liable for the actions of their employees; however, this is a circumstantial determination based on a number of factors.
