I'm an employer in PA. I have a need to create an attendance

I'm an employer in PA. I have a need to create an attendance policy for my employees and my concern was regarding docking pay. The policy would be 3 steps, then dismissal. 1. Verbal Warning 2. $0.50/hr docked off pay for that pay period. 3 $1.00/hr docked off pay for that pay period. 4. Termination.We are on a bi-weekly pay period and employees are paid $10-15/hour, so at no time would they be docked below minimum wage, nor would I not pay them for any hours worked. Is this allowable under PA and Federal Law?

I have an LLC that was created specifically for 1 project

I have an LLC that was created specifically for 1 project (movie production). The movie has been produced and finished, however some employees are filing wage claims with the State Labor Department. Unfortunately, my funding has stopped because the project is over and there's no way I would be able to cover anything at all as the company has 0 assets. Will filing bankruptcy release me from owning any money? What can this lead to after that?

Apparently someone at my job filed a complaint against my

Apparently someone at my job filed a complaint against my company. We were working 13 hour 20 minute shifts. 1 and 20 minutes was considered training time. When we worked overtime, which was generally 12 hours, they would pay 8 hours overtime and 4 hours straight time because they considered the training time separate. This was found to be illegal. In turn, the employer decided to cut our hours to 36 hours citing that they could not afford to generate overtime. I had nothing to do with this complaint to the labor board. This seems like retaliation. My question is, could this be considered retaliation?

Hi. I was terminated recently and I live in Maine but my employer is in California. I didnt get my check on time. Does the wage law for CA apply to me?
