theft

My work truck was broken into and a little over a thousand dollars worth the product was stolen. The company was aware that I didnt have locks for the truck months before the theft. Now they are docking my pay to pay until the thousand is repaid.

docking pay

Generally, an employer is not permitted to dock your pay to repay a debt owed to the employer, except for an advance on wages. You can contact the Massachusetts attorney general's office to file a complaint against the employer. You should know that it is also illegal for the employer to take action against you for exercising your right to file a complaint with the Attorney General's office.
