A: Subject to your consent, and perhaps some other information not given here, your employer may not deduct your wages for a short cash register (till). If this happened recently, you already have less than 1 year to file a complaint.

The State of Michigan has what's called the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity. And a division of that is the Wage and Hours (and commission). https://www.michigan.gov/leo/0,5863,7-336-94422_59886---,00.html
