Recent Final Paycheck questions

I resigned from my previous employer on July 1, 2016. After

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 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?

From Iowa---An employee who walked off the job without notice is demanding her paycheck but she hasn't yet provided her social security number and she moved just after being hired four weeks ago and hasn't provided her address either. She also borrowed some brand new cookbooks (we are a restaurant) she hasn't returned. We are stating she must return our property, provide her social security number and address to receive her check. Are we correct in our position. she doesn't want to provide any of this. Can we deduct the value of the books from her paycheck?

My daughter is 19 and was employed by a local summer camp.

My daughter is 19 and was employed by a local summer camp. They claim that they are legally able to pay her and the rest of their employees as independent contractors through Dec 2016 because they are a nonprofit. My daughter was just fired yesterday but has been asking for copies of her timesheet for the last few weeks. We were just told that she would get her final paycheck but they had turned over all the timesheets to an auditor and then an attorney to make sure they are all ok before we get them. Is that legal?

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida and my last day is 7/22. Back in March I was given an advancement to attend a conference which I can not attend now.I agree that I owe the company a debt, and I'm trying to work out a payment plan with them that is reasonable and will not leave me without money until I start my new job.They want to take out money of my last 2 paychecks for the amount of $1,726.00. That is over what I make and it would leave me without money to pay my bills on time or eat, etc.I want to know what my rights are as to legally what they can do to me. I have asked them several times in writing to work with me and why I can't afford to pay it back before I leave the company.
