  • Deducting Money owed from Employee's Last Paycheck Ohio

    Hello,

    Is it legal for us to deduct money owed the company from an employee's last paycheck, if the employee has signed an authorization for us to do so? The deduction would relate to vacation time. Our company grants vacation time at the beginning of an employee's work year before they have actually earned the time. If they were to use all of their vacation within the first 2 weeks after their anniversary date and then quit, we would want to deduct the vacation pay from their last check.

    Thanks
    Mike

      Ohio statute re paycheck deductions: Employees may authorize deductions from their paychecks. Employers become the trustees for any deducted funds and must forward them to the authorized recipient within 30 days. Employers and employees may agree to deductions for wares, tools, or machinery damaged by employees, but employees must specifically authorize any deduction. Employers can't make that type of deduction from employees younger than 18.
