Can your employer take money out of your paycheck for medical deductions they forget to previously take out?
Employer is trying to remove money from our paychecks because of a mistake made when checking a patient in. They are trying to charge us for the total cost of the exam, …is this legal?
This depends on each individual person and their jobs: * Where do you work (country, states, industry you work in) * What kind of work do you do (type of industry…) * What rights do you have on your job? Do you have a union? * Are you insured for industrial accidents?) Is you employer insured for industrial accidents? * How much damage did you do? * Were you working with defective equipment, or under unsafe conditions? * Were you careless, playing around or negligent? On the other hand, some employers are just greedy and mistreat their employees. If it was a large amount of money deducted, I'd talk to a lawyer or Legal Aid.
can employer leagly count your tips
If you are an employee (not an independent contractor receiving a 1099 instead of a W-2), it is an absolute requirement that taxes - all types - income, FICA, unemployment, et…c., etc be handled by the employer.
Federal and state taxes should be deducted by your employer based on how you filled out your Form W-4 when you were hired. If you claim too many exemptions on your Form W-4 it… may result in no federal taxes being withheld. If you need to change the amount being deducted, you will need to fill out a new Form W-4. Contact the IRS or state tax agency for help in filling out your Form W-4. If you need a different Form W-4 for your state taxes, you may fill one out and write "State only" on the top before giving it to your employer. If your employer is refusing to withhold taxes from your pay, you can contact the IRS and submit a Form W-4 directly to them. This notifies the IRS that your employer is not complying with the law. If you are classified as a independent contractor, anyone who hires you does not make any payments on your behalf. Independent contractors are responsible for making estimated payments for their federal and state income taxes and Social Security taxes. They are also not eligible for unemployment. If you are concerned that you should not be an independent contractor, you should contact your state's employment department to determine if you are really an independent contractor or an employee (and your employer is illegally trying to save money by not classifying you as an employee).
No, it is completely illegal, unless you work less hours and deserve less pay. Otherwise, it is classed as theft and is a very serious crime. --Added by AJMinNJ-- There are s…ome exceptions to this like court ordered deductions and taxes. However the original poster is correct that they can not do it on their own authority.

Yes. If it was an oversight on their behalf, they are entitled to garnish the total amount back. Also, it depends whether or not you were actually entitled to vacation time. I…f this is a personal problem, I would suggest speaking with your work's payroll department or a union rep. to discuss this matter further.
Can your ex employer bill me for medical insurance that wasn't deducted from my paycheck while employed by them?
Yes. When you receive a bill from your employer that would mean that they can bill you for the medical insurance while you were employed by them.
In State Laws
An employer should never deduct anything from your paycheck for unemployment benefits. They have to pay the state you work in a payroll tax based on what they pay the employee…s, etc. You need to ask what the 35% is for, as it may be Social Security, Medicare, etc. which is not involved with unemployment benefits. If/when you lose your job, your benefits will depend on your work history, and other matters the state uses to determine your eligibility. Check with your state's employment office for clarification.
Not only is he not obligated to, he is forbidden to. Only employers pay the state through their payroll taxes, never the employee. The state pays the benefits.
