If an employee is...

If an employee is terminated for Grand Theft (over $9,000.00) can I with hold his final paychecks? We have pressed charges and according to our local police department, he will be arrested shortly. I am located in Florida.

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you have any upcoming court dates on the Theft charges?

No, the case was filed with the local police department last week, and I submitted my sworn affidavit today.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a FL lawyer about this yet?

I've inquired with our company business attorney, but she is unavailable until next week as she is on vacation. I am just trying to determine if I need to issue his check as payroll is tomorrow.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That would be the basics of the case, so no, I don't think so.
