  • HOLDING WAGES Illinois

    My employer is threating to hold my wages (which is my final cause I quit) because of a mistake they are claiming is my fault. I am a auto damage appraiser and I get paid per assignment that I do. I wrote a estimate on a car that turn out to have some unseen problems. I wasn't made aware of these problems until after the car repair was complete which cause the car to go over total loss value . My employer is a Independent Appraisal Company and because of this problem the insurance company is saying they want to collect from the company and in turn the owner is saying this 2400 dollar problem will be deducted from my pay check, can they do that???
