I was the manager of a restaurant in Louisiana. I recently quit my job, called the owner and informed them that I was quitting and that they were to come over and take over the restaurant. I was told that they could not do so at that time, so I informed them that I was leaving the keys to the restaurant on the desk in the office and I quit and left. 12 hours later they contacted me and told me that the safe was 1000.00 short, and either I pay them or they would file charges. I balanced the safe in front of witnesses before I left the store. Am I obligated to pay? I never signed any employment agreement stating that I was personnally libel for any money shortages.
