  • Taking money out of paycheck???

    I can't find anything about this on any labor law website, so I am wondering if someone here can help. I work as a Medical Assistant/Lab Tech at a private doctors office. We deal with patient co-pays and account payments on a daily basis. The medical assistant working the "front desk" is responsible for collecting patient co pay at the time of the visit. I gave my month notice 2 weeks ago, and today the office manager informed me that one day back in October I was $40.00 short of money for the day. Obviously, I can't explain why I was short money in October sometime in late January. After discussing it with the doctor, the office manager informed me that they are going to be taking the money out of my last paycheck. Is this even legal? Can they take my wages out of my check without my permission? Anyone, someone...HELP.

    One angry Medical Assistant.

    Depends on your state as to whether this is prohibited or not. What state?

        Generally speaking, California law specifically prohibits such deductions.

        See specifically, question #2.
