We issue cash banks to employees at the beginning of their shift. At the end of the shift, they need to turn in the cash bank they received, cash they rang in, credit card slips and paperwork from the register. If an employee "loses" the bank and cash rung in and you normally would terminate for a cash handling policy violation, can you waive termination if the employee pays the money back? For example, if you don't pay it back, you are terminated, but if you do pay it back you are not. I seem to remember a recent case in MA involving a trucking company where employees were not disciplined for damage to vehicles if they paid for it and/or if they paid the increased insurance company. The court said you couldn't do this. I can't find the case though.
