  • can I make my employees pay back the cost of repairs? Delaware

    Is it possible to have an employee pay all or part of the costs to repair or replace tools, equipment, cell phones & computers that they lose or damage through negligence? And if so, can it be deducted from their pay as long as we have their permission?

    From the DE DOL site;

    Unlawful Deductions: Employers are not permitted to deduct or withhold wages for:

    Cash or inventory shortages
    Cash advances or charges for goods and services (unless there is a signed agreement specifying the amount owed and the repayment schedule).
    Damaged property
    Failure to return employer's property
