Why “Handling Money” Matters:
The cash register is $30 short at closing because someone made a careless error, but the manager thinks one of the employees is stealing.
Someone left the register open on a busy night, and a thief made off with most of the bills.
A cashier didn’t bother to count back change to a patron, and the patron complained that she’d been short-changed.
A front desk staffer didn’t follow proper procedure for cashing checks, and the check she accepted from a guest bounced.
A bartender left a patron’s credit card on the bar while the patron was in the restroom. When the patron got back, his card was gone.
A hospitality worker didn’t look closely when he accepted a $100 bill from a patron. The bill turned out to be counterfeit.
