Actually since it is only a small amount taken it would be taken to small claims court where it would only cost anywhere from $15 to $100 not thousands of dollars.

How would this claim be ridiculous though? The OP had their money stolen from their purse whilst it was in the care of the manager and if the manager refuses to reimburse OP she has every legal right to sue them. I'm not saying OP should there are of course other ways she can go about it this but if it came to it she could sue them and then any legal fees get added to the judgement as well for them to pay if OP won of course.

If they don't want a bad image then as soon as you bring up suing them and they see you actually have a case they will reimburse the OP anyway because as you said they wouldn't want the bad press. But I agree with what you I personally wouldn't go running straight to the courts either I would talk to the manager then if that didn't work the managers boss. If they still wouldn't reimburse and were also assholes bout it then I would seek legal action more on principle than wanting my money back by then though lol.

@1 Damn straight! The employees should be penalized and the money should be restored and nobody should be allowed to go home when their shift is over and they don't get overtime. Problem solved. That should go on until the money is given back or someone gives money.

67, you can't detain people at work without paying them overtime. That's illegal. And the purse was in locked in the manager's office so if anyone took it it was the manager. As far as suing goes it's OP's word against their's. She would lose in a court case because it's hard to prove that you had cash and how much cash there was in the purse.

walmartpaysme, I seemingly have to work on my reading comprehension because I read and re-read the fml and I didn't see anything about a "locked" office

You have a point llamacod. Still, the manager tells her to leave it in the office and money gets stolen. Sounds like the manager did it or at least had something to do with it.

You couldn't sue someone over a criminal matter. This is something the police should sort out as there has clearly been a crime. Suing people can only happen where you've been 'wronged' in some way, but there wasn't a crime (eg. if you were injured but it was someone else's fault for not taking care). It's a matter for the civil court, not the criminal court.

86, it's still just OP's word against their word. There is no way to prove OP had cash in her purse, or how much was in there. People lie about things like that everyday.

So you should listen to the asinine advice of a potential boss? Even when you know it's faulty? Look, OP knew that it was a bad idea, she knew it was better to hold on to the purse but she decided to listen instead of speaking out. Do you really think saying 'no thanks, I fell more comfortable with my bag' is going to make you lose the job? But you know what your right, listening is so important, far more than voicing your own opinion. I mean what can go wrong, definitely not having someone steal your money.

You should have just said no that's cool I would prefer to keep it with me. Also I would be going to them and saying yeah since you suggested for me to leave it in your office then I think you really need to reimburse me for the money that was stolen from me. Also if it was a bit of money taken you can always try and take them to small claims court but I guess that's only if ya really want the money back or if they're really being assholes about it.
