I work for a temporary agency and I am working at a warehouse. They have robbed me of atleast 3 days pay. They have erased all evidence that I was there. They said that I didn't clock in. They said that they didn't see me coming in on the videos. They don't have a record of issuing me a badge. And I looked through a stack of sign in sheets and the days in question are missing. They are over time hours and this company has a habit of stealing over time hours some people have quit for that reason but I can't afford to quit. I want to find another job first. What can I do?

(Her paycheck was also not deducted for the employee contribution amount of $59.68, instead this was provided to her in her paycheck). The employee no longer works for the company and no longer has a retirement account. The employer want to cut a check directly to the former employee for the amount of the underpaid company match, $47.75, and add a 5% return each year. The company pays bi-weekly and there are 26 pay dates per year.1. How do I calculate the 5% return per year on the original company match amount that was not provided to the employee?2. What is the total amount to provide?3. Request assistance in writing a business letter to explain the issue to the former employee.
