In those states where it is illegal to make an employee reimburse losses what happens if a register drawer comes up short? I thought it was pretty acceptable/common in retail that the short came out of their pay check. I'm worried about his crew leader. What do you know about him and how long has he been with you? Did you eport this stuff to the cops. If not I would. I woul;d have them interview the crew. I've had inside problems. Get rid of who ever stinks and your problems go away too.
