I recieved my last check yesterday and I was charged for the whole amount without solid eveidence that i took all the money. How do I go about getting the monies entitled to me and what should i do about this matter.
It is a legal matter and you may have the authorities after you. Your employer had no right to do this. Contact the Colorado Department of Labor.

Your employer is not permitted under the law to simply deduct the money from your salary - there is no judgement against & no garnishment of wage order.
