the 1800 number for assistance to unlock my door my boss says that it cost him 182 for the lock out assistance he waited 2 months and then without notice he garnished the 182 out of my pay i would like to know where i stand
First do you have an employee manual? If so truly sit down and read it. Lock-outs may be at the drivers cost and the employer will deduct all fees from your pay. I use to drive school bus and it was there. Have two uncles that drive cross-country and its like that for them.
There also may be a wait time for you to get the fee and pay for the cost. If you have not paid within a certain amount of time the fee will be deducted from your pay.
Now, if your pay periods are bi-weekly, may be reason for waiting so long to deduct fee. When this happened it may have been around a holiday time, you may have been on the road and they did not want you be strapped for funds.
It could have also not been your boss, but payroll/bookkeeping that auto deduct fees from pay. They might have had to wait until the funds cleared then deduct fee from you check.
Read the book/manual, it could even be only a few page/s long.
You can contact the labor board and see what they would tell you. I would think they should have notified you first, weather they had a employee manual or not. And it may state, that they do not have to notify you, because it is in the employee manual.
