My employer altered my w4 without my consent and admitted to

Hi! My employer altered my w4 without my consent and admitted to it, but the company is claiming it "isn't a big deal". I had thought it was illegal and am trying to figure that out. We have no HR person although our company employs over 200 people, so there isn't anyone other than the owners to go to and the accounting team just said I should have checked my pay stub.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NYJA: 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: The company also didn't withhold any nyc inc tax for anyone hired in 2016 and claims it was a paychex error and they aren't responsible for withholding the tax.

I voluntarily made myself an appointment with the IRS.

I have filed Chapter 13 and it has been approved. Part of my paycheck is garnished every two weeks. Part of the Bankruptcy goes to paying past debt to the IRS. If I get a return on this years taxes, will the IRS keep it even though they are all ready getting paid from my garnishment of the Chapter 13?

My husband worked for an elevator company as a helper a few

Good Afternoon, My husband worked for an elevator company as a helper a few years ago on a job in NY - he was on that job for over 2 years. He no longer works for the company.Over the summer, we heard (thru the grapevine) that the job was a "prevailing wage" job and that the helpers should have been paid the same wage as the mechanics. Recently, we heard (thru the grapevine) the approximate amount of the payment we will be receiving. $40,000+We had several questions - one being what taxes will be withheld? We do not want a major tax liability next year. So I called the company and asked how I can change the amount to be withheld - and also to request that our payment be made via a physical check - not direct deposit. I was told that we can complete and send them a W4 showing what withholding we would like.I think it is weird first of all that we have not received anything from the company, that we are hearing everything thru the grapevine. They are just going to send out a check to us and most people will probably just cash it and not question anything.Something just doesn't seem right to me - kind of like they are hiding something.

My employee quit in the middle of the workWe try to contact her many times but cannot get a hold of her.Two weeks later she showed up and asked for a paycheck. We ask her to complete her W-4 and then we pay her the next day.She received her paycheck the next day without the Paystub because it was shipped to us the next day from the payroll company.She never came back to get her paystub.A month later I received a letter from her lawyer saying that we did not pay her on time and we did not provide her the paystub.Do you suggest we get a lawyer for this case?Are we doing anything illegal by any chance?

We just started hiring employees to serve as licensed

We just started hiring employees to serve as licensed insurance agents with our agency. One of the requirements to be licensed is the employee attending a third-party licensing class. In this instance, a new "hire" class was sent to the 2-day training prior to signing any of their employment documents (w-4, employee handbook, etc). One of the employees called to say that they cannot make the 2nd class. As a result, they cannot be certified and cannot move on with the rest of the class. This ends their employment. In this instance, apparently the plan was to have the employees complete their paperwork on Wednesday when they reported to work onsite. How do we handle the person that attended class on Monday, but is now no longer going to be employed because they missed the class on Tuesday?
