Just learned something very interesting. I was looking into whether employees can take back money from your paycheck if they accidentally overpay you. It turns out, they CAN’T! At least, not in California.
Not only that, but they also can’t charge you for the cost of items if you accidentally break them (gross negligence excepted), and also can’t charge you for any cash drawer shortfall unless they can prove it was due to a dishonest act, AKA stealing from the till.
