  • final paycheck Alabama

    Can an employer hold a final paycheck to wait for office supplies to be returned?

  • #2
    Technically, no. However, the problem is that AL has no drop-dead date when final pay must be released. Most states do, but AL is one of the few that does not. So there's really nothing to force the employer to release the pay prior to your returning the materials.

    You're probably best off just returning what they want you to return. If they STILL don't release the check, your claim will then be stronger.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
