Despite the answers below, many states laws' are silent on this particular issue. What is clear is that you must be paid the applicable state or federal minimum wage for your occupation and age consistent with the company's normal payroll (or sooner in some states). If you are historically paid at a rate higher than minimum wage the employer may be able to reduce your pay to minimum wage. Depending on the circumstances many employers will do so and withhold the surplus above minimum wage until you comply with their reason for seeking to withhold wages in the first place. In certain states even this may not be legal without advance notice (often included in the employment agreement or application you sign when you first go to work for them).

Answerno. you have to be paid your final wages. it doesn't matter for what reason you were terminated. a lot of places tell you that you can't get your paycheck until you turn in uniforms or such but if you demand your check they have to pay you. if they refuse threaten to call a lawyer and go to court. AnswerCheck out http://www.dol.gov This is the US Dept. of Labor homepage, it can answer your questions. AnswerDo not sue or go to DOL. Contact your state employment commission. Almost all states have a "payday law" requiring employers to pay final wages within X days (usually on the regular pay day for your last week).

Maybe.

If the employee has a garnishment order in affect or mandatory child support deduction, worked on a commission or expense account and so forth, the employer can withhold a final check until such matters are resolved.

In every state I have lived in, there are no circumstances under which an employer may withhold your final paycheck, or any paycheck, for that matter. It would be helpful to know in which state you worked.

Absolutely "NO". They cannot charge to withhold taxes. They can charge to withhold a garnishment if instructed by the court.

When you are terminated for just cause (Fired for justified reason's) the employer has 10 days to pay 100% of outstanding moneys. If you are terminated in a situation requiring notice under the law the employer has 3 days to pay after your last day of work. This is all From the web site search employment Alberta

In the US, no, a person cannot legally withhold alimony they've been ordered to pay. Of course they can petition the court to have the alimony terminated based on the fact that the recipient is living with someone else. Rather or not the court will do that, depends on the state laws.

The final SCSI device in the chain of devices must be terminated. If you have only one device and it's attached to a SCSI port, you must terminate that device. If you have two or more SCSI devices that are linked together and to a shared SCSI Port ie: SCSI Port, Device #1, Device #2, etc, then the final device in the 'chain' must be terminated to allow for proper recognition. The SCSI Port also requires a terminator as well.
