Im a bartender and over the weekend we had a very big event at the bar I work at. On the 2 busiest days, Friday & Saturday; instead of being able to count my tips on my own as I usually do; my manager made me put all my tips in a box with my name on it and give it to her. She said the "accountant" would count my tips for me and then give me my money the next day. This is not how we do things on a daily basis so I don't know why my manager made me do this on this particular weekend. And I'm not comfortable with the fact that someone else counted the money I earned without me being there to watch them count it. This has to be illegal cotrect? What are my rights in this situation?
It is legal, but I wouldn't trust the dude.
