Our expert says:
In my experience, family businesses are often verty bad organizations to work for. They sound like a dodgy bunch, including their attitude to petty cash --- if you keep it, they could still make trouble for you. Maybe they have been quiet about it so far, recognizing how much they owe you for their illegal busines practices as regards how hard they worked you and underpaid you, but they can spring this complaint against you any time they please. Discuss this with a good labour lawyer, and the CCMA, and make arangements to repay them the amount involved, as well as exploring your rights to redress for having been unpaid for all that overtime.
