My wife recently chose to terminate her position. She was approx. 6 months into her 'anniversary year', but had already used almost 100% of her scheduled vacation time (approx. 1/2 of which had not yet been 'earned'). The employer is insisting they be reimbursed for the overage, and made a large deduction from her final paycheck to cover part of that reimbursement.We're not opposed to paying back something, as it seems like the right thing to do.However, we disagree with their calculations.What is our best approach?
I live in Mesa, AZ, and I am a graduate student at Grand
I live in Mesa, AZ, and I am a graduate student at Grand Canyon University. I was working for Jonathon Taylor at 101 Walls Support Services. I am a Behavioral Health Technician. Jonathon knew when he hired me that I would have to cut my days to do my internship. He decided that he did not want me to take Tuesdays and Fridays off, so he asked me to resign. My last day was last Friday, and so was my payday. He refuses to give me my paycheck until the keys are returned. I have attempted to do that, but he and Nikki Chapman, the Human Resource person are always too busy to meet with me. What can I do about this situation?
I live and worked in Texas. I gave my job my 2 week notice
I live and worked in Texas. I gave my job my 2 week notice and my last day was to be on the 23rd of October. I was then fired without warning on the 14th October before my 2 weeks were complete. By law those that were fired are to receive their final paychecks no later than 6 calendar days. Once I asked via email when I would receive my last paycheck I was told the following, "You gave notice, you were not terminated.”. I responded by saying that I was fired before my 2 weeks were complete and that I was available until the 23rd. I did not voluntarily quit before then. They then responded with, ““If the employee quits, retires, resigns, or otherwise leaves employment voluntarily, the final pay is due on the next regularly-scheduled payday following the effective date of resignation. If an employee resigns or gives notice they will be resigning, there is no provision in the Payday Law requiring employers to continue to employ the person until the date they intended to resign or to pay them beyond time they actually work. “” Who's in the wrong?

In job offer, the company is giving a hiring bonus and a relocation package (either lump sum cash or relocation through a 3rd party). For both of them the company states that they may withhold the unearned advanced amount from your final paycheck up to the maximum amount permitted by law".How is this maximum determined?

I resigned from my previous employer on July 1, 2016. After I quit, they apparently did not submit my termination to the payroll department and I continued to receive two extra direct deposits as an active employee. I called on August 8 and spoke with a lady who handles the termination paperwork to my 401k company, asking her when my termination paperwork would be turned in. She advised me that my final paycheck would be in two days on August 10th, so I assumed they still owed me money. I was a salaried employee. Now, they are demanding the money back in full. Am I required to pay them back? If so, can they refuse small monthly payments? I reside in the state of Pennsylvania.
On 06/19/2016 I signed an accepted a relocation package from
On 06/19/2016 I signed an accepted a relocation package from my employer which they provided via check on 06/28/2016. The last paragraph in the letter states that Should my employment terminate for any reason during my first year of employment I must reimburse the company and they have the right to keep my final paycheck.I had been with the company for more than a year the letter was signed and the letter states nowhere that I must complete another of year of service. It was presented to me as stipend for performance however now that I am thinking of leaving they threatening to keep my final check and sue me for the difference.Being the letter states if my employment terminates for any reason during my first year and not a year from the date of the letter do I have any legal recourse or a leg to stand on if this should go to court?
