Hi I work in a place where we discussed an hourly rate and then all of a sudden my employer without discussing it with me turned it into a salary but I don’t even know my salary and started making up reasons why she deducted money. She owes me 1000 doll

I am a teacher in a small daycare and I took the job because the enployer told me it would be 40 per hour and my paycheck doesn’t reflect that.

Employers are required to notify a new hire in writing of the amount of the expected wages. If there is a discrepancy, it would make sense to discuss it with the employer and try to come to an agreement on wages going forward. If you believe that deductions are being taken from your pay that you did not authorize and are not required by law (e.g., tax withholdings), you may call or visit the Department of Labor to file a complaint.
