A 7-Eleven convenience store in Tokyo illegally docked the payment of a 16-year-old part-time worker after she took sick leave without arranging for another employee to cover her shifts, the chain’s operator said Tuesday.
The store deducted ¥9,350 from the high school student’s paycheck after she took two sick days for a cold in early January, according to Seven & I Holdings.
The store had informed its part-time workers that they must find other workers to cover their shifts when they take unscheduled days off and that they would face penalties if they do not find a replacement.
The operator apologized for the act as it is the employer’s responsibility to find a replacement when an employee is unable to work.
The entire amount will be returned to the girl, who has already quit the job.
