Service station employees should not be charged for losses from drive-aways – that is a legal matter…

The guilty parties who screwed their employees.

Low-paid workers at a petrol station convenience store have been docked hundreds of dollars after customers fled without paying.

Kerry McIvor, who left in disgust from Masterton‘s Night ‘n Day store, which also operates a Gull service station, said: “It came out of my wages without me knowing. I asked him [the boss] and he says: It happened on your shift, so it’s your fault . . . I was ropeable.”

Masterton Night ‘n Day franchisee Nick Lucas defended the “drive-offs” policy as standard industry practice. “When an employee makes a mistake, there are repercussions.”

Motorist drive-offs are  criminal acts and service station employees should not be liable. They should join their union and get them to fight the so-called ‘standard industry practice’ which is illegal anyway. You can not deduct wages from employees unless they have agreed in writing.
