Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Are you an employee or an independent contractor? Also, in what state is this occurring? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
The Texas Payday Law prohibits employers from deducting from earned wages without an express authorization from the employee. Moreover, unless the damage to the vehicle was the result of your negligence, your employer would have no legal basis for going after you for the damage even if they didn't withhold your wages. If you are not paid your final earned wages, you can file a wage claim with t he Texas Workforce Commission. The TWC will order your employer to pay your earned wages, plus interest, plus likely penalties. You can initiate the wage claim process here.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
