I combined two checks by mistake. The customer paid out and signed the receipt.

Today my Resturaunt manager accused me of theft because of frequent table transfers. He accused me of transferring items and having them paid out twice. This happened once, that I'm aware of by mistake. Every item I have ever rang in is accounted for and closed out for cash or credit. All slips signed by customers for correct amounts that check was closed for and all payments turned in at the end of the night. I still don't follow his logic, but want to know if there are any crimes he can accuse me of and if I should seek legal counsel to protect myself.

Based upon your description it is difficult for me to see any criminal charges. There are many times when something is done that is incorrect or wrong, such as having items paid for twice, but it is a leap to go from there to criminal conduct, unless this is part of an ongoing scam.

You can and probably should see an employment lawyer near you to discuss the precise facts related to your issues.
