    I don't see where Patty was not polite & panther was replying on his experience.

    Good luck to you - time to close this thread.

    Think as you wish I added my input that you can use or ignore your choice. I see red flags based on my expereince. I might be justifed I might not does not change how correct my answers were. I never said you were a thief only that your post gave cause for concern. I did maintain adult attitude unlike you nor have I spent 30 years in min wage jobs

    morgan314, my last reply before this one was to panther - not you. You & I were typing at the same time but you got your reply off first.

    I, for one, never called you a he but called you OP (original poster).

    File a wage claim per link I provided if you are not being paid correctly.

    P.S. I understand you're upset but you should still watch your language.

    Possible. We just don't know.

    It seems the employer may have some pay violations himself. (& offers no
    benefits to employees not that he has to)

    True but the threat of such action can provoke the desired reaction. Example I had an employee who was stealing "big time" however due to really poor tactics from previous investigator they were unable to pin the crimes on her even though everyone knew she was doing it. Rather than risk losing thousands more I came up with a plan the made her decide to quit. it didnt recoup what we lost but it did stop the bleeding. This might be similar

    It seems kind of unusual that OP would only take $2.00 if done on purpose but
    I guess you never know. I doubt employer, as Patty said, would file police
    charges if OP didn't pay.

    Patty I agree but what alarms me as a former investigator of internal theft is there seems to be a history of such "mistakes". Granted the current employer may not know this. There also might be other shortages that cannot be tied directly to OP that the employer has suspected OP. I can tell you that when I had reason to believe an employee was stealing but only thing I had was small I went for it just to hopefull stop the action or terminate the employee. Now if OP had not mentioned a history of shortages I would have likely responded differently.

    Could he file a police report for theft? Sure. Would the police laugh him out of the building for $2.00? I certainly hope so. And what proof does the employer have that it was theft and not just an honest mistake making change? Does anyone else has access to the cash drawer besides the OP?

    I'm guessing that $2.00 means a lot more to someone making minimum wage that is does to an owner of a business.

    And merely filing a police report is not automatically going to cause the state to deny unemployment benefits.

    If seeking him to repay $2.00 takes him under min wage and employer wants his/her money back he (the employer) could file theft charges or fire him for theft making UI claim impossible. I don't see how OP cannot afford to repay 2 bucks! I also wonder why he has a habit of shortages? Maybe its the Loss Prevention in me but I have to wonder

    The min. wage in Ohio is $7.30 with some exceptions - see links below. The 2nd link tells you about filing a wage claim.

    It also seems you are not being pd. for all time worked if you have to clock out
    at 3:00 & work beyond then.

    By the way why are you having so many shortages? This seems odd as your post describes "other shortages" ar previous employers

    It does if the employee makes only minimum wage, which the poster does.
