I received a bounced check from employer it was reissued to me and I got my weeks pay. Then the amount of my check was misteriously withdrawn from this account down to the penny and now they are sueing me for the amount when I only received one payment this has happened to several other employees and they paid it back without the legal trouble. Me on the other hand got a new job and left the place of work now they are sueing me for the amount even though they still owe me hundreds of dollars in overtime that was with heald from my checks prior. What should I do ?
You need to talk to an employment law attorney. First, your employer cannot take money from your pay except under certain conditions. Second, if they still owe you overtime, they could be looking at a lawsuit that would cost them far more than they are trying to get from you.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
I agree with Mr. Meisenhelder. You definitely need to see a labor and employment attorney.
