cashier

An employee or a restaurant, store, or other place of business, whose duty it is to have charge of the cash register and take payments front the customers, ordinarily at a position near the exit from the place of business; the chief executive officer of a bank, who transacts the bank's business under the orders and supervision of its board of directors. Martin v Webb, 110 US 7, 28 L Ed 49, 3 S Ct 429. The cashier of a bank is at least an executive officer rather than a mere employee. Blanc v Paymaster Mining Co. 95 Cal 524, 531, 30 P 765; of course, the authority actually exercised by a bank cashier depends upon the plan of operation of the particular bank. In some banks, the cashier follows closely the directions of the president or chairman of the board, looking to one or the other for advice in important transactions.
