  • What are my rights Arizona

    Recently I was terminated for what they called Fraud, but it was a pratice that was taught by corporate personnel when billing clients. I worked in the temporary staffing industry and what I am trying to get to is that a client requests 3 workers and only 2 show up but the clients still puts down that 3 worked that day, we still bill the client for the 3 and pay another employee to clean up the office or wash the vans on those extra 8 hours. I know that is wrong but this was a common practice that just recently the corporation began to crack down on. There was 2 occations where employees where terminated but there final checks where not held back and on other occations the employee was talked to but not terminated and was not asked to repay the debt. Here I was terminated for something that happened months ago, and had my final 2 paychecks held back with no reason except a verbal that they where keeping my final checks to pay back the debt. I signed nothing, and I haven't heard any official version from this corporation.

    What can I do??

    They cannot hold your pay unless there is a good faith dispute about the amount owed. I would recommend filing a claim with the ICA (Arizona version of the DOL) and let the company explain to them why they haven't released your paychecks.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Arizona requires when an employee is terminated by the employer, wages must be paid within 3 working days or the end of the next pay period, whichever is sooner. (unless there is a "good faith" reason for withholding pay)

      I would do as Patty suggested & file a wage claim with the Az. ICA.

      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
