Department of Labor

The Department of Labor fosters and promotes the welfare of the job seekers, wage earners, and retirees of the United States by improving their working conditions, advancing their opportunities for profitable employment, protecting their retirement and health care benefits, helping employers find workers, strengthening free collective bargaining, and tracking changes in employment, prices, and other national economic measurements.

In carrying out this mission, the Department administers a variety of Federal labor laws including those that guarantee workers' rights to safe and healthful working conditions; a minimum hourly wage and overtime pay; freedom from employment discrimination; unemployment insurance; and other income support. (DOL's mission statement)

Perhaps you are working for the DOL or interested in working for the DOL. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DOL.

I work night audit in a hotel. My manager has recently decided to enforce a waiver that makes all front desk staff responsible for replacing any money that goes missing from the register during their shift. The claim is that either the money gets paid back or it gets witheld from our paycheck. Refusing to sign means termination.

Can they legally require us to sign it or risk getting fired?

This forum is for employees or those who want to employees of the Department of Labor. You may want to talk to the NLRB or your state equivalent (as they may have greater protections than federal law).
