I have a former employee who was terminated because he was

Customer Question

I have a former employee who was terminated because he was over claiming hours to get pay overtime. When he was confronted about the hours he said he worked but he didn't. He openly admitted that those hours were used for personal purposes. The over claimed hours were deducted from his last paycheck and he is not harassing and threating to sue the company because his last paycheck was zero due to the negative balance as the over claimed hours exceeded. What steps should I follow?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Virgina
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Virginia
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: We send him a termination letter via mail explaining the reason that we was fired and showing the zero balance paycheck, but the envelope was returned to us.
