  • Employee paying error costs to employer

    I come in early to my job and have to turn the security alarm off when I
    am the first to enter the premises. I accidentally set it off and the monitoring center called and sent the police over. The police charged my employer $50 for the call. Now my employer is charging me $50 and wants me to pay. Do I have to? Isn’t this against Labor Law?

    This is not inherently against federal law (FLSA). Maybe state law. What is your state?
    Federal deduction rules.

        Florida is not my state, but Florida has a reputation for having little or nothing in the way of state labor law (other then a higher then federal minimum wage). Perhaps someone knows about a FL law on this that I do not. Otherwise, you are looking at the federal rules that basically say the deduction is allowed as long as it does not interfer with minimum wage and overtime.

          Fl. has no wage deduction law re private employers.
