Deduct from pay not authorized; did not follow through on terms of employment

This employer has a policy to withhold one weeks pay from employees for not reason at the start of hire. The employee is entitled to receive those funds back at the end of their employment, if ever. Is this legal. This employer promised as a term of my employment to pay for my health insurance first day, but did not follow through and i had to pay my insurance for the first 90 days am I able to get the money back from them?

The answer you need cannot be given from the facts supplied. If the health insurance offer is provable then you can get this, however, if the job is an "at will" position you may lose in the end.

My best response is take what you have and pay for a consultation with an employment lawyer to see what you have. You can select one near you at: www.oelasmart.net/directory
