What if they never did it verbally or orally, we only knew when he got his check stub. At other times when he was out they paid him for the entire week but it appears that they picked and choose when to pay him hourly.
The vehicle allowance was part of the deal in going to work there and the owner talked to him because the company was in the red and said that they were going to take vehicle allowance away from everyone. Well they took it away from him but not all other employees. Then when he went and spoke to the owner about it and it added up to about $2600.00 the owner decided to give him $1000.00 in cash and now that is showing up on his salary as other, not vehicle allowance. They still owe him $1600.00 does he have any recourse in getting the remainder of his money.
He is longer employeed with this company but would like to get the remainder of his money.
