Commenting to # 12, it's actually required by most companies to close the store down after a robbery to call the police and to prevent the robber from coming back. And in Canada and the US it would be against the law to dock her hours after closing the store due to an extremely stressful situation such as a robbery. OP, call the labor board, or human ressources and file a complaint.
I don't understand? I know it sucks that you got robbed, but how can you put any blame on the boss? You're to get paid for hours that you worked, and if you don't work certain hours, you're not entitled to get paid for it. Think of it in your perspective: do you pay the folks who mow your lawn (just play along even if you mow your own lawn) in the winter? No. Because there's no work for them to do, so you only pay them for what they're owed. So while it does suck that you closed down shop because of a unfortunate event, it doesn't mean that your company should pay you free money. You can go to a socialist country if you want something for nothing. I don't think many of those exist nowadays though. Though in the US, you can ask for unemployment if you get fired.

Why'd you have to close the store? Were you too busy crying? If you didn't work the hours you shouldn't get paid for it. To my knowledge there is no "giant whining pussy" clause in the Labor Board's rule books for garnished wages.
