hoding back paycheck not legal
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
A good friend of mine was training someone at work on a forklift.The trainee managed to run the forklift into a barrel of hydrochloric acid, my friend was thrown from the forklift before he had a chance to shut it off. He has lost his job over this, but the company is trying to hold his last paycheck because of the emergency room visit for him and his coworkers.this does not seem right or even legal. Isn't that what workman's compensation is for? Would it make sense for him to get a lawyer over this?
