1) I am a Company driver.
2) Yes , they are taking our FED, FICA-S, FICA-M, AZ State (which is where I live). They also take out for Med, Dent, Life Insurance (which I never signed up for in the first place the life insurance., they also take out MISC. CLIE (?) and Pay ADVANCES.
3)I get 0.38 cents per mile. with per diem
4)No-one that I have talked to are having as many deductions as I show on my Paystub.
5)This has been going on since I came to work here. At one point I discussed it with payroll and it seemed to help but it soon went back... I get paid weekly. My total earnings for the week of June 1st thru June 6th. were $1190.92 My TOTAL DEDUCTIONS for the week were $913.78, and the amount that went into my Bank Account this morning was: $411.38 plus $75.00 that went to my exwife. They claim that I got an $80.00 advance last week but I have the receipt that shows I only got a $55.00 advance...
In this Company Management doesn't know much about payroll and as far as payroll I have spoken to them many times and asked about these deductions but they play dumb and blow it off. Yesterday for example I called them about the advance and they flat out lied to me saying that they had a copy of the receipt right in front of them that shows that I took out an $80.00 advance (last week) but I have the receipt the original receipt that shows I only took out $55.00. But if you feel that I don't have a good case??? Then I'll likely pack everything up and send it to the Illinois Labor Board and also to the Circuit Court and ask them Investigate the Company...
