First and foremost it is illegal to withhold or deduct anything from his check without his express permission. So to whatever extent charging that to the employee means withholding it from their wage, that is clearly illegal. But what they could be saying is that they'd withhold it from the staffing agency, perhaps. There may for example be an arrangement between the staffing agency and company wherein the staffing agency charges the company $X and pays the hourly wage to the employees. It would not be illegal for the the company to withhold from the staffing agency. The staffing agency also cannot withhold from the employees pay without their permission. So, the short story is neither of them can withhold from your son's pay as by law he cannot have such a withholding without giving express permission. If a withholding like this did occur, I'd suggestion filing a claim with the Texas workforce commission.
