Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
FedEx is not likely to resolve this matter since it does not harm them in any way. So a lawsuit may very well be necessary.MO law is unfortunately not as strict as most states with regard to employee wage deductions. The law, unlike most states, permits an employer to take deductions shortages and other reasons as determined by the employer as long as it does not cause the employee to be paid less than minimum wage.Here is a link that provides more information:http://www.labor.mo.gov/DLS/General/reducing.aspMO Statute 290.080 does require that the employer provide employees with a statement (usually a pay stub) at least once monthly setting out a description of the deductions from pay. Under 290.010, the employer must provide employees with at least 30 days notice of any wage reduction. It appears the employer has violated these statutes by not providing the required information or notice.Here is a link that provides more information:http://www.employmentlawhandbook.com/WageHour/State/Missouri.html

That info just saved me hours of internet searching and wasn't sure even what to look for. Any other suggestions of harassment that a local lawyer can pursue? I'm tired of trying to be nice.
