Recent Deduction Questions

  • Can a landscape company charge its employees for equipment

    Can a landscape company charge its employees for equipment that was stolen from the truck while the employees were in the field? The employees are paid non-exempt hourly. The owner of the company would like to automatically deduct $X per paycheck in the
    future in order to cover the cost of replacing the equipment. Besides being limited to not paying the employees less than minimum wage on each paycheck, is this legal? Also, there is no company handbook - all &quot;policies&quot; are merely verbal and change from situation
    to situation, but I digress.....
  • My employer deducted from my pay check for an error he made

    My employer deducted from my pay check for an error he made 4 months ago. I did bring it to his attention at the time of the mistake. Notable things: He paid me for 3 days (one which was not duty free) that I took off, I am salaried exempt at the time.
  • Can you please tell me where I can find these laws in

    Can you please tell me where I can find these laws in writing? Is there a link you can send me? I was searching on the NYS site and found some things, not specific enough for a very small business. If we opt to pay something can we pay a dollar amount
    or does it have to be a percentage? Also, what are the benefits or draw backs as far as taxes go. We are an S-Corp. I know this requires more detailed answers. If you could give me these details I would appreciate it. I realize this is a new question. :)
