Wage & Overtime

Unlawful Deductions From Wages

Outten & Golden attorneys represent workers victimized by employers that take unlawful deductions from their earned wages. An unscrupulous or unknowing employer who makes deductions from a worker’s earnings for items not sanctioned by law is liable for those deductions plus penalties. Unlawful deductions include those for lost or damaged company property; business losses; register shortages; and overhead expenses. An Outten & Golden attorney can analyze whether a particular wage deduction is legal or not under federal and state law and counsel workers on their options to recover all earned wages.
