So I am assistant manager of a restaurant and my manager is on vacation this week. Well we offer these cards that after customers purchase so many meals they get the 11th meal free. Well yesterday I caught one of the waitresses punching all the way down to the free meal on two cards. I hollered for her and she dropped them and walked off. You could tell she had a disappointed look on her face. So I walked out to the front and picked them up and put them in my pocket. The thing is if employees are caught doing this they can be fired on the spot. So I walked to her and asked if she was punching them and she said she was bored and was just punching them to waste time and was gonba punch all the way through and then throw them away. I think she was lying because I k ow her boyfriend just lost his job, they live in a camper, don't have much money, and abuse both drugs and alcohol with the money they do have. She's told me. I have no real authority though to fire, and if I tell my manager and she gets fired she will k ow its me that told. And I do t want any retaliation from her. What do I do?Answer Question

Yep, I agree w/ ABeaverhausen. Give her the warning, extra work to keep her from being bored, & enough rope. She'll either pull it together b/c she needs her job, or given enough rope, she'll hang herself when the Manager is back. (metaphoric rope of course!)
