Is Your Employer Docking Your Pay For Expenses? They May Think It’s Legal. It’s Not.

The Social Security, FICA, state and federal taxes that many of us see taken out of our paycheck each pay period is simply a normal part of the working world.

But not all deductions are.

Sometimes, employers deduct or dock certain expenses from our paychecks. Unknown register shortages, third-party property damage, dine and dash customers — many employers have and do force employees to pay for these things out of their own paychecks.

But such “setoffs,” as they are known, are illegal.

If your employer is docking your pay for these or any other reason, we encourage you to reach out to our team of employment lawyers to talk about what happened.
