Welcome to the chat
Did you give them authorization to open your mail?
hi my name isXXXXX
It is illegal to open another persons mail. However, that illegality can be waived if you gave them express authorization to do so
I didnt give them this
the letter was address was address with my name
18 USC Section 1702 makes it illegal for a person to open another persons mail when that mail is addressed to someone else.
As for taking the money out of your check, that is also illegal.
There needs to be a judgment against you
If there is no judgment then you can make a claim with the DLSE
what is DLSE
You will claim unpaid wages and be entitled to all money being taken out as well as a waiting time penalty
It is the department of labor standards enforcement
You would file a claim here:
but what if they fix it within the same day as the error was made
is there a need to report it
They have until the next pay period to fix whatever unpaid amounts exist unless you are terminated in which case they must pay you immediately.
So if they fix it within the same day then there would be no cause of action there
alright that is what i thought
Does that fully answer your question today?
