I was working for a small financial firm. I quit because my employer told me that I would have to be financially responsible for mistakes made in accounts that resulted in fees imposed on those accounts, including errors that were made in the course of correcting errors originally made by my boss. Basically, thousands of dollars would come out of my pocket to reimburse accounts managed by our firm. Is this legal? Do I have a case to sue my former employer for wages lost due to the fact that I did not want to continue working for the firm because I did not want my pay check to be on the line every time a transaction error occurred?
