NTUC allegedly "deducts" self-checkout staff's pay for negligence; gives her blue Christmas

“We take this opportunity to clarify that we do not have a policy of penalising staff for shoplifting cases. We’ve spoken with our branch staff including our cashier who shared that 2 months ago, she had been unable to reconcile the takings for the day. Investigations revealed that the small shortfall was due to negligence in not properly processing a NETs transaction. Cashiers on duty are aware that they are responsible to ensure that their tills tally and make restitution in the event of a shortfall. We do not dock their pay in such instances. This is a standard practice in the service industry to ensure Cashiers take ownership and accountability for transactions. As a fair employer, FairPrice will not hold staff accountable for incidences they are not responsible for. We hope this clarifies this matter. We will also be reaching out to Mr Ang on his post.”
