  • Docked Pay Idaho

    My son is 16 years old and working for a privately owned pizza place. He got to work yesterday and there was a note on his time card saying that they dockind his time card one hour for not washing a counter down. Is that legal?

    I would answer in one word, but the bulletin board won't let me do that.

    The one word answer is "No."

    He must be paid for all hours worked. His failure to do something properly can be disciplined, but not by docking his pay.

    Now when it comes to addressing this issue, let him do it. Don't you call the employer and tell them they are wrong (which they are). Your son may still be a juvenile, but he can probably handle this issue by himself.
