  • Employer deducting pay without notification to employee.. Tennessee

    My employer deducted $50 listed as damage from my last pay check without telling me anything or having me sign anything. I found this out when getting online to look at my pay stub, and appears this will continue until damage costs are recovered.

    I work security for a company hired by another company.

    About a month ago the computer I monitor told me it was time to close a gate. I looked at the monitor which was clear and pushed the close button in turn hitting a out bound car with the gate. There are two out bound lanes and you cannot see the one furthest to the right also you cannot even see the gate until its more then halfway across the lane. There are suppose to be indicators on the gate that prevents it from hitting a vehicle also.

    I have spoken all the way up to the regional manager whom admitted to approving monies to be taken from my paycheck and was told he will have to look into the camera issues and to give him a couple of days.. By the way he couldn't even tell me how much in total i am expected to pay.

    Any help would be great...

    And even then, if you make minimum wage, or close to it, federal law may apply also.

        You don't need to get an attorney. File a complaint with the state Dept. of Labor. That's what they're there for.

        If you are fired because you filed the claim, then contact an attorney.
