hi

 

that is unbelievable the computer should have the answer as to whose customer walked and it just seems the manager/owner would want to have this straight. unless, they are trying to force you to quit -

 

i don't like telling you this but there really is nothing you can do legally. unless you want to sue your employer in small claims court for the amount it cost you. if you file a lawsuit, you can then demand that the computer records be given as evidence.

 

it's a process to take someone to court and while i know that it is the entire principle of the matter - in addition to whatever it cost you in tips - you need to ask yourself is it worth it. will those records still be available at court time, etc?
