I am due my final paycheck and my employer states that I am negative in my Paid Time Off Balance from when they advanced me some paid time off days earlier in the year, so they will be deducting the amount from my final paycheck. Are they allowed to do this?
I do not think they can do this, but you should contact the Michigan Dept of Labor at (517)322-1825. I think it will depend on whether or not you signed something authorizing the deduction of money from your check in the event something like this occurred but the DOL investigator will be able to tell you for certain.
