gas station attendant being forced to pay for drive off

Rate this Entry
Is it illegal for my boss to make my coworkers and I pay for a drive off? She says because we couldn't tell her what vehicle it was that drove off is why we have to pay. I live in Michigan and my husband lost his job and is having a difficult time finding work. So I'm support him, myself and our 3yr old daughter. My checks, take home, are anywhere from 140-180$. I can not afford to pay for the drive off and I was told it was illegal. Please inform me.

Also we have to pay for missing lotto, cigarettes, etc.

    illegal. Those are the hazards of being a gas station owner, and the expense is hers to bear. Though you are in a difficult situation because you can tell her it is illegal, and ask her to stop, you could even report her to your state's department of labor, but you do risk losing your job. Though, if you were fired for that reason, you could sue her for wrongful termination and at the very least you would be eligible for unemployment benefits...
