I work in a dance studio as dance instructor, my employer wants me to do chores around the studio, otherwise he would take some money out of my paycheck weekly.
Doing chores is not part of my job description...
Is it legal for him to take money out of my paycheck in this situation?
Can the employer take money from your check without first putting you on notice, no. It would be considered a breach of agreement, an agreement on your rate of pay. Can the employer change your rate of pay going forward to pay for things you decline to do, yes. Employer is free to change the rate of pay going forward anytime it wishes and it is free to add or delete any job responsibilities it wishes. You, of course, have the right to decline and find work elsewhere. Hope this helps.
