I am going through a lot of things from my employer. On

Hi, I am going through a lot of things from my employer. On December 28th I sent my boss a message asking when I was going to get paid he hasn't paid me a whole month because the company was going through a rough time and still because his current partner is accusing him of embezzlement which my ex boss still does not know that he's being under investigation. I have been helping the partner to uncover things that I found out but now don't know what to do since my ex boss is sending me an email asking for missing things from the office. I need advice on this.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TxJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I was recently let go from my job because I used a company card. I have agreed to pay back what I owed in two installments. I have made the first installment payment successfully but I was relying on my last commission check to make the second and final installment. The company is witholding the commission check because they are now make false allegations of more wrong doing. What recourse do I have?

I'm in a complicated situation and don't know what type of

I'm in a complicated situation and don't know what type of legal advice I should be seeking but it originated as employment issues.I was the office assistant, which my employer has me doing office manager work, including processing payroll through ADP. She created an individual log-in for me through ADP Online to process payroll, my log-in was enabled to have full access to all payroll processing including setting up Direct Deposit. I had set up Direct Deposit for myself while I was still employed there.When I quit, I never again accessed anything from this employer, including the payroll system. It took a few back and forth emails and text, her claiming I never provided her my last signed time sheet and that's why it took her 3 weeks to pay me. At this time, is when she realized I don't get a physical check. She went crazy and started saying that I'm embezzling money from her or attempting to embezzle. I have only received what is my rightful pay, especially my last paycheck for the hours I worked. She then insisted that I stop the direct deposit from my bank, I did as she asked but my bank can't stop a deposit, only the originating bank can request that.Apparently, she told her bank that that particular deposit was "unauthorized or fraudulent" so her bank froze her account. She texted me, saying she had to pay $60 in fees to unlock her account and wanted me to pay her for those fees. In the text, she started saying she will sue ME & MY HUSBAND.In fact, in numerous emails and text, she would mention my husband. He doesn't know her, never met her, has nothing to do with her or her business. However, she likes to include him and part of the messages, saying she'll sue me and my husband.I provided a $60 money order and included a letter, stating the $60 money order is to compensate whatever fee she claims I'm responsible for. I also included that she needs to leave me along and that her constantly mentioning my husband a way of harassing my and him, meanwhile he doesn't even know her.She called me, left a voicemail. She was upset, and in the voicemail, she said my letter was insulting her and she stated that "yes she doesn't know my husband and that she never included my husband in any of this" and she will be taking me to court.I have proof, text messages and email, that clearly shows her mentioning my husband.My questions are:1. Is this something she can do, sue me for setting up direct deposit, meanwhile she made me the authorized payroll person with her company?2. What can I do about her mentioning my husband in these text and accusing him as part of some scam she thinks I was doing to her?
