The employee actually used a credit card to take a trip across country, he traveled from North Dakota to Colorado and then to Maine. The total of the fuel used was $1035.00 that was put on a company credit card.
I do understand that there are strict guidelines regarding withholding funds from an employee's pay, thus the reason for contacting you with regard to this matter. However, the employee has agreed to sign a release giving the company permission to withhold the funds in exchange for no criminal charges being pursued. Will this be sufficient or will we need to pursue the charges?
Thank you. You have answered all of my questions,
