    No, the employer cannot. The only state in which this is allowed is South Dakota. Your only recourse for return of the property and (possibly) damages is a civil action.

  • Hold final paycheck until return of company property Wisconsin

    Can an employer withold any or all of an employee's final paycheck who has quit and has not returned company property (building keys)? Our handbook written policy is:

    Employees are responsible for all property, materials, or written information issued to them or in their possession or control. All Company property must be returned by employees on or before their last day of work. Employees who fail to return company property upon separation will be required to compensate for the value of the property and any expenses incurred as a result.
