  1. This employee needs to know his or her rights to counsel as a WCB case hope the employee files for it the employer may not do so.

  2. Someone needed beer money….the register doesn’t hold large amounts of cash….
    At least he didn’t get killed for petty cash…

  3. Unfortunately our laws prohibit anyone from physically engaging such a person, the ol bat behind the counter, you could be sued, and police are spread too thin to be effective in stopping such acts. Seems people are starting to figure out they won’t be caught. The description is completely useless.
