Pay deductions for forgetting a task

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Where I work we don't current have contracts. On a close, we have a list of tasks that have to be done and if we miss any we're deducted an hour pay for each task we miss. You could say just don't miss anything then but it's a lot to get through and everyone makes a mistake once in a while.
    I've since found out they're not allowed to do this unless it's in our contract. We also have to pay for any drinks we make wrong but I think this is fair. How can I talk to them about it? They're a fairly new business and I don't want to sound like I'm complaining or lose my job. Now that they're rehiring, I don't want them to get into trouble.*

    That's a difficult situation to be in. It's best not to talk face to face about it as you may lose your job, especially if you don't have a contract. Do you have an email address for a more senior manger/head office of some sort you can anonymously send a letter to about your concerns.
