need some advice please

  1. Last week at my part time job, $200 went missing from one of the tills. I closed that night with one other girl, but, there were 3 other girls working that afternoon.
    We searched everywhere for that cash, and could not find it. The store manager went through all of the cash register rolls, to see if someone had simply made a mistake, and nothing could be found.
    Now, Loss Prevention has gotten involved and they want to meet with all of us ( i'm not sure if this is a group meeting or alone)

    So, as I have never had to deal with this before, what the heck happens? Does this mean they think it was one of us who took the money? (For the record, I did not take it My family and future are worth way more than $200!!)
    I am a little bit nervous that finger pointing may start as I am the new kid on the block so to speak. I have nothing to hide, but is there some way to prove that?

    If anyone has any thoughts on this, please pm me. Thanks.

    Tell the truth is always the best policy.Alot of stores run video cameras,with one sometimes on the cash register.Does Your store do This?We always counted the money from the shift changes,that could also be compared with the reciets.It may make it better or worse,if it is determined to be during your shift.Then you and the other Girl will be pointing fingers at each other.If it comes down to them not believing you.Demand a lie detector test.If they don't want to pay for it,tell them to call the Cops.They'll give everyone Lie Detector tests.

    Most places that is just standard practice. Management goes through the obvious places it could get lost, then if not found the bring in risk management. I think as long as your honest you should be ok. Wheather there is finger pointing or not, they have to prove the person they are accusing. Not to scare you, but I have heard of places that if the money is not found or the person does not fess up, the whole shift is replaced. It is usually stated in policy and procedure manual what they will do. Good luck!
