That first one is surely illegal. Either the company makes money off you or it's a deterrent from you reporting injuries. That's a law suit waiting to happen. Even if it is in there right there will still be suits.

The extinguisher one is definitely a fire code violation if the business is in the U.S.

Fire extinguisher is a HEAVY law suit waiting to happen. Fire starts on company property and someone gets burned. That will most likely destroy that entire company. Go to court. Say I got burn. judge will ask "well where the fire extinguisher?" Oh there isnt any. Boom. Goodbye company

In the US it's absolutely illegal to tell employees that they cannot discuss salaries.

I remember when I was training at a call center, they said you weren't allowed to ask what other people made.
I said "No, that's not true."
"It's company policy."
"That's illegal, then. There's no federal law regulating that. We can ask each other what we me make if we want. You can't fire us for that."
"Well, do you think it's appropriate to ask other people what they make?"
"Since wages have stagnated since the 70s, yes."
"... Okay, you're allowed to ask, it's just really discouraged, guys."
Know your rights, people!

My work takes out 30 minutes from my paycheck everyday for lunch even though I rarely take my lunch.

I looked it up. It’s illegal.

The lunch break thing is the law. They can get fined 5,000 dollars each incident. It's a state law.

I successfully sued my shady ex employer. It costs them 3/4 of a million dollars including a huge fine to the dept of labor.

"Federal law requires the company make up the difference if you're tips don't make it up to minimum wage."

Yeah. But it doesn't protect those employees from being fired, or having their workplace be hell, if the company has to do that. (Something that happens frequently)

As a salaried employee, I can tell you I am required to work a minimum of 10 hours a day, but leaving work after 10 hours is heavily frowned upon. I am also “on-call” 24/7 and get texts, emails and phone calls at all hours of the day and night. Work-life balance does not exist. This is difficult to deal with sometimes, but not impossible. What I refused to do, however, was participate in mandatory donations to the charity of our HR manager’s choice. The amount was not excessive, but telling me I had to do it, on top of all the other donations, bake sale contributions, weekend charity activities, etc. was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I told them they’d have to deduct it from my wages or they could fuck right off.

A little over 10 years ago, I had an employer that "highly recommended" I make a FaceBook page.
I had heard horror stories about employers checking out these pages, finding even minuscule things they didn't like and firing the person, but my employer was adamant, make a FaceBook page. Me: "well... OK"
So in the spirit of r/maliciouscompliance, I did it, made a FaceBook page and posted on it:
"My employer asked that I create a FaceBook page... ... ... here it is."
Haven't touched it since.

If in the the United States: you are 100% within your right to discus wages with other employees. This is protected under the National Labor relations act. Now, what happens afterwards(hostile work, etc) may not be protected so use discretion. But if an employer threatens termination over the discussion it self, file a complaint with the United States Department of Labor.
