  • Pay Witholding Law in Michigan

    The Jobs Vice President of operations told payroll to deduct all of my paycheck except for 78.00 bue to a loan that I took out from the company but was agreed for me to only have to pay 150.00 per check until the loan was repaid. It it legal for him to withhold the balance of my paycheck other than the 150.00 that was agreed upon when the loan was issued.

    The law in Michigan only states that deductions may be made that are 1) required by law, such as taxes and court-ordered payments (child support, garnishments, tax liens, student loans and 2) any other deduction the employee has authorized before the deduction is made.

    Since you only authorized $150 be deducted against the loan, that's all they should have deducted. Do you have a copy of the signed agreement? I would get one and contact the state Wage and Hour Division of the Dept. of Labor. It appears they have deducted more than you authorized, which they cannot legally do.
