My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Georgia
I am trying to find information on what kinds of demands/restrictions an employer can place on new hires in an at will situation. Can an employer ask for a security deposit to encourage employees to return work-issued equipment after ending their employment?
The business is having issues with employees who are issued laptops, cell phones, electronic key cards failing to return the items when they quit or are fired. Withholding monies from final checks is an issue because of the FLSA and the fact that many quit with no wages owed.
Does anyone know where I might be able to find this information? I have called the US DoL, but all they can tell me is that employers can place demands or restrictions on employees in at will arrangements, but they cannot tell me where to find the information, or anything else. the Georgia DoL was no help at all.
Thanks for your time.
