Can we charge employees for lost access cards?


Q: “We have access cards to enable us to get into the building through our employee entrance. Cards are given at time of employment free of charge, and a form is signed to the effect that if the card is lost, there is a $25 replacement fee. Also, if the card is not returned at the end of employment, there is a $25 fee. Is this legal?”  – Andrea, New York
