@WeddingBells2014:  It’s his word against hers and there’s no telling if she just didn’t bring as much cash with her as she thought. Honestly, if he’s fired for that, the manager is pretty stupid.

@WeddingBells2014:  one of my employees called me one night missing a lot of money and swore up and down a co worker had to of taken it. I didn’t know what to do because there was no proof but it was a lot of money. Good thing she called me back because she had misplaced it. Numerous times I myself have misplaced or spent more than I thought. They should not fire him without proof. there is no proof the 20 was actually there to begin with. Now if his drawer came up short at work then they can tell him to pay it back but that’s ridiculous!

@WeddingBells2014:  If they fire him with no evidence that he stole her money, he could get unemployment, right? 

I feel so sorry for you and him. He must feel terrible right now. He’s just a hard working guy who is doing what he needs to do, and then shit ridiculous shit happens. I can’t even tell you how many times someone has been wrongly accused bc the victim insists it couldn’t have been anyone else. For all we know, she stuck the money in her hoodie, then left the hoodie at home and thinks she definitely put it in her purse.  I’d never accuse someone of theft unless I knew for sure they did it.

@WeddingBells2014:  The good news is, I bet $20 doesn’t constitute theft where you are. Here, the minimum is $50. So the “pay up or we’ll get you arrested and prosecuted” threat probably isn’t as big a deal as it sounds (but I’d check to make sure).

However, I agree that the manager would be silly to fire your FI over the loss of $20. If there were other incidents that involved shady actions by your FI, it would be one thing, but to fire a good worker just because another worker can’t keep track of their money (and very possibly got it taken by a customer, since they’re pretty often actually quite dishonest).

How heartless is your FI’s co-worker, anyway, trying to get someone fired literally the week before Christmas, over $20?! Especially since all she has is her “I know he had to have taken it” logic instead of any sort of actual proof.

@WeddingBells2014:  I can’t honestly believe they would fire him without actual proof that he took it. That’s just so ridiculous! What if it fell out of her purse or something?! I’m sorry you’re going through this!

@WeddingBells2014:  Yikes- what worries me is if people lose something- they are quick to blame someone.  What if she never brought the money?  What if she lost in along the way?

 

I guess the question I have is:  do you believe your FI is capable is taking the money?

how can they fire him with zero proof that he took it?

how long has he worked at this place?  is he still on probation?  if he is, they may not need a reason to let him go.

@WeddingBells2014:  I just realized you’re in Canada. Those two rules do determine who can get what for EI. Hopefully it doesn’t come to that. When do you find out what happens?

@WeddingBells2014:  I’m so sorry. It’s so unfair that he got blamed for this. Even if he did it, there is not enough evidence to peg it on him and accuse him of stealing. I can’t believe how unprofessional his boss is by telling him to give her the money back and there’ll be no trouble; don’t give it back and you may be in trouble with the law. How outrageous! Does it occur to him that he may be saying such a thing to an innocent man?

Does your SO have a criminal record or past that makes him susceptible to accusations like this?
