I work in state, my employers are in Utah, and we have a

I work in Washington state, my employers are in Utah, and we have a business license to run our branch in Washington. My office is being cut from the company I've worked for for a while. And my team members are being told they are being given severance. No paperwork, just a final paycheck direct from company. The question is that without that paperwork, my employers are thinking that the employees are still required to give them some work within reason during the amount of time for the lump sum they are receiving, is this something they can demand without a contract asking for reasonable assistance?

Are California public school classified employees exempt from California Labor Laws when it comes to a final paycheck? I have read that the Ed code trumps labor law and they do not need to follow the 72 hour law.

An employee signed a Retention Bonus Agreement in December

An employee signed a Retention Bonus Agreement in December which said the following;Employee shall receive a retention bonus in the amount of $2,200 (the “Bonus”), payable in thenext paycheck following the Effective Date; provided, however, that if Employee leaves theCompany within six (6) months of the Effective Date, Employee shall be obligated to return, andthe Company retains the right to withhold from her final paycheck, an amount equivalent to theBonus.The employee is leaving 5 months later. She is claiming we have no right to withhold the bonus because her position was changed in the meantime. This doesn't hold any weight to me, since there are no terms to that effect in the agreement. Are we entitled to withhold this from her final paycheck, or is there anything in California law prohibiting this?Thanks!

Is an employer allowed to "true up" advances made to an employee

Is an employer allowed to "true up" advances made to an employee on a final paycheck that were not previously collected? In 2015, the employer was collecting any advances made from the following paycheck. In 2016, this was not done, the employer claims, due to a clerical oversight, but were collected from the final check after the employee quit. Is this allowed to accrue without notice or signed agreement?

A coworker and I are in the process of filing with

Hello! A coworker and I are in the process of filing with the Pennsylvania Labor Law and Compliance because we didn't get our final paychecks from a previous job. I have spoken with a state investigator and cooperated with anything he asked me to do....even though I felt like I was being accused of things every time we spoke. The owner of the business moved out of state and the investigator is dealing with her sister who was not even part of the business while we worked there. My coworker questioned the investigator on why she felt like she was the one being accused when all she wanted was to get paid. The investigator got a supervisor on the line and recorded the call and the supervisor told her that he was really sick of all three of us (meaning me, her, and the owners sister) because all three of us were bullheaded and no one was giving an inch and we were wasting the taxpayers money. This seemed totally rude and unprofessional. Do I have any recourse and what is the section of law that this would be pertaining to? My husband wants to make contact with them and wants the facts.
