Did they clear out their history?

/home/user/.bash_history would seemingly be a pretty good place to start.
Also you could check out their username in /var/log, and see all instances
of what they might have done....

This is seemingly another vague question, any more information on what you
are looking for? If you want something going forward, you could use
$(script) for all users on the systems and have it right to an rsync'ed
folder for future review.....
