I sure hope that's not legal! Check with your local labor agency to see what your employee rights and responsibilities are in regards to this. You could also call your local Bar Association to see if they can have a volunteer attorney answer your question for free, or help you get a free or low-cost attorney referral.

Until you get an answer, don't commit yourself to paying for it.

Before talking replacement, make sure the cleaned one is broke. Many solid state electronic devices will survive a trip in the washer. Remove the battery and the cover (if possible) then dip it in alcohol, dry it out and put a new battery in.

Out of curiosity, what does the alcohol dip do?
Boils out any remaining traces of water that might remain in it.
