I work for a national hotel chain that is independantly owned and operated, as a front desk clerk. My drawer was short $2.00. My boss informed me that I had to pay the drawer back no matter what the shortage was. I make min wage, $7.25hr and work 40 hrs weekly. He said it was the law anywhere i would work, not just there. Is he correct? i have worked as a cashier before at gas stations and ski lodges and had shortages of up to $100.00 and not a word was said. He also makes us clock out at exactly 3pm even if our relief is not there and we still have to work. he said everyone else does it to benefit the company. Am I being a troublesome employee? And Could you direct me to a website that could help. P.S. I am not a prejudice person at all but i will NEVER work for an Asian Indian again! no benefits, overtime, vacation, sick days, insurance, breaks, nada because they're cheap! yes I am angry. I don"t mean to offend anyone. i'm frustrated and truly sorry if i did. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
