My boss went up to my girlfriends job drinking heavily. She asked a question about some furniture she was repairing and he started yelling at her and insulting her about firing me. He kept on and made her upset. Then fired me in a text when I was not there or at work. He also had let her barrow money and told her his personal money was not the shop money. So can he fire me and keep my check over him being drunk, arguing with her, and her owing him money?
If he is stealing your paycheck, speak to your State's department of labor or a local employment attorney right away.
