Improper Deductions from Compensation

Improper Deductions from Compensation

Employers often attempt to pass certain operating expenses onto their employees by making deductions from their pay. This frequently happens when an individual is misclassified as an independent contractor rather than employee and has to compensate the company for things like insurance, vehicle costs and other administration fees. However, this can also happen to individuals properly classified as “employees” who are still subject to deductions from their compensation. State wage laws (such as Pennsylvania and New Jersey) severely limit the types of deductions that companies are able to make from their workers’ pay.

If your employer makes improper deductions from your compensation, you may be eligible to make a claim for unpaid wages. If you have any questions about this investigation or would like to discuss a potential claim, please contact us to speak with an attorney for a free and confidential consultation.
