A restaurant cannot charge an employee for customer walkouts or breakage.

Employees are not responsible for financial losses due to customers not paying bills or for theft of the restaurant’s property. Restaurants cannot make deductions for spoilage, breakage, or cash shortages.  Nor can a restaurant deduct money from an employee’s pay as a fine or penalty for lateness or other misconduct.
