  • $3.37 last paycheck in Ohio

    My husband has a problem with his last employer. In September he ran over something in a equiptment yard and ruined a tire on the truck. He was charged 179.00 for the tire and at the same time was told he had to pay 26.00 on a phone bill--We never saw any bill or anything on this just $50.00 a week taken out of his check as an ADVANCE!! until the 205.00 was paid.
    He just started working for someone else this week and his last check was for $3.37 that is how much the direct deposit was for. They owe him 345.00 On Dec 21 after dark and in the pouring rain loading a bulldozer on a trailer he lost a company cell phone (which they insisted he carry on him at all times) Now he has to pay for this too? How can they do this? An advance shows as money you get, not money taken from you without your permission.
    Any and all help will be appreciated.

    Deductions, other than the standard required by law, generally have to have permisson of the employee in writing.
    View this document ( requires acrobat) to see more info. If an employer wants to recoup lost damages, they have to pursue legal means.
