That happen to me once at BP I went in an prepaid for 20 mine went up to 32 before I knew it. I didn't have any money on me so I had to go get money from the ATM but I wasn't happy. That's why it's called prepay the cashier should be at fault an it should come from their pocket.

Same thing as stealing. If you get more than you pay for, whatever the reason, you stole it. If you only have $20 for gas, pay attention to the pump. Everyone today wants to blame someone else for their wrong-doings. Personal responsibility would go a long way in these situations. And we wonder why there are so many security cameras, phone listening devices and Pre-Paid gas pumps. Its not anyone's fault but your own if you take more gas than you pay for and you are thief if you do so. Disagree with me and you are wrong; a crook is a crook even when nobody is watching.

By state law, an employer cannot make an employee pay for drive-offs. If you know of any employer doing so, report them to the state labor board.

Most of the gas stations I clerked for had a policy that if the pumps didn't shut off on a prepay, then the customer didn't have to pay for the extra gas.
yeah

One of the purposes of prepay, is so the pump stops on it's own. Thats why at Some gas stations they will let you know if you are set to fill, meaning the pump will not stop on it's own. If you prepay and the pump does not stop that is a store error, so It's not stealing. I would refuse to pay, even If I had the money

Clueless? Here's the federal law on wage deductions: http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs1...

Relevant excerpts:

"Some examples of items which would be considered to be for the benefit or convenience of the employer are tools used in the employee's work, damages to the employer's property by the employee or any other individuals, financial losses due to clients/customers not paying bills, and theft of the employer's property by the employee or other individuals. Employees may not be required to pay for any of the cost of such items if, by so doing, their wages would be reduced below the required minimum wage or overtime compensation. This is
true even if an economic loss suffered by the employer is due to the employee's negligence".

This means by Federal Law a boss can't take money from any employee that would leave him with less than what he would make on Minimum wage.

Kentucky law on wage deductions:

http://162.114.4.35/statutes/s tatute.aspx?id=32051

Relevant excerpt:

"Notwithstanding the provisions... No employer shall deduct the following from the wages of employees:

a)Fines

B)Cash Shortages...

C)Breakage

D)Losses due to...

E)Losses due to ... nonpayment for goods or services received by the customer if such losses are not attributable to employee's willful or intentional disregard of employer's interest".

This means that if a cashier didn't intentionally let someone drive off, then the boss can't make them pay for it.

As to the second part of my last post ITT, I wasn't passing judgement on anything, just stating that most of the places I worked for as a clerk treated pre-pay problems as the store's issue, not the customers.

Some of yall are seriously f***ing ignorant.
