Answer : Their employer is
probably violating California’s employee
reimbursement laws. In essence, those laws
prevent an employer from collecting or receiving
from an employee wages already paid to the
employee. Moreover, they say that employees
must be reimbursed for all necessary expenditures
or losses incurred in the course of their
work. Are these rules ever broken? You bet they are.
Although workers across the state have recovered
sizable awards against their current and former
employers for reimbursement violations, other
companies are slow to change. If this is happening
to you, get informed. Your paycheck is your
property, not your employer’s.
The legal system is set up to “level
the playing field” and give workers
the power to correct workplace abuses. Scott
Cole & Associates has served California’s
workforce for many years as one of
the state’s most respected workers’
rights law firms and has recovered massive and record-setting
settlements for employees for workplace abuses.
