  • Payment of Restitution Massachusetts

    I am a part-time cashier working in a grocery store. Each cashier is issued an individual till which is counted out at the end of the shift by both the cashier and a cash office worker. If there is a deficit of greater than $5 in the drawer, the cashier is required to pay that money back to the store (not taken directly out of the paycheck but some amount demanded at the end of each week) Is this practice legal?

    Employers can make deductions for cash shortages so long as the deductions do not impact minimum wage.

    That's the same under FLSA and Massachusetts law.
