My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Florida
I have a question. My boyfriend was fired from his job 13 days ago. His second to last paycheck should have been given to him 2 Fridays ago, and his last check (for an incomplete 2 weeks) should be given to him this Friday (in four days). My issue is that they have been withholding all of these checks stating that there were things that had to be replaced from his negligence (which is not true) and they are withholding the money until they can deduct that from his checks. Is that legal? Is there a time frame that they HAVE to give him his wages? We have also accrued overdraft fees and reconnect charges because he didn't get paid. Can this be sued for in small claims court?
I appreciate whomever answers this!
