    Answered . If the employer is truly a partnership, the agreement by one partner binds the partnership even if the other partner later disagrees. I suggest that you contact the Wage & Hour division of the NJ Department of Labor and tell them you believe your employer is making unauthorized deductions from your paycheck. They should be able to intervene.

    Kindly note and remember that my response is merely a general comment on the law related to your question, and NOT legal advice or opinion. Also, your question and my response does NOT create an attorney-client relationship between us. You cannot rely upon what I have written, because I do not have all of the information that I need to advise you or render an opinion. Even simple facts you have not shared can completely change my answer. For me to give you legal advice or opinion, you would need to hire me to be your lawyer, and then we would need to discuss this in detail and go over the documents.
