I am a shop worker. Can my employer make deductions from wages to cover till shortages?
Such deductions are only lawful if there is a specific term in the contract of employment permitting the employer to do so. You must be given a written copy of that term so that you know your liability in the event of till shortages, and the deductions must not exceed 10% of your gross pay packet unless it is your final pay packet.
