  • Is this legal?

    Okay, I've been working for this fast food resturant for about 4 months & it was supposed to be a temporary thing & so i got fed up with the way they were treating me & i walked out without notice & so i was supposed to pick up my check today & when i went there to hand in my dry cleaned uniform , they are saying my cash register was 200.00 short the day i quit. & now they refuse to give me my paycheck BUT this is not my last paycheck pay period goes from the 1st-15th & 15th-30th & we get paid the 6th & 22nd so i quit on the 19th so i will have 1 more check on the 22nd, so.... There is NO proof AT ALL that i took this money & although i wish there might have been cameras to prove my story there's NOT & so they will not give me my check & before i go & call a lawyer , does anyone know if they are legally allowed too do this ?????????

    No, they can not keep your check. You can file a claim with the state DOL if they refuse to pay you.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

        You can ask them. Maybe tell them that your next step is to file a claim with the DOL. There is no guarantee that they can cut you a check in the next 24 hours even if they agree they owe you the money.

            You haven't even indicated your state that I'm aware of, and we're not mind readers. I would suggest that you either use Google or the yellow pages to locate your state DOL and its wage/hour division. You will then need to follow its procedures for filing a complaint. We have no idea what those procedures are nor how long it will take.
            I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!

              Good point, Marketeer.
              I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
