Question Details: I recently left an office job I was unhappy in. I left thursday. Today I was told by another worker that the office is missing $300 in cash. I did not take anything from the office when I left. They still owe me direct deposit pay. Can they legally take the money without evidence? Can they report me and have me charged? The office has 2 other employees who are still in office.
