What Can My Employer Deduct From My Paycheck and When Does An Employer Have to Reimburse Business Expenses?

An employer can lawfully withhold amounts from an employee’s wages only: (1) when required or empowered to do so by state or federal law, or (2) when a deduction is expressly authorized in writing by the employee to cover insurance premiums, benefit plan contributions or other deductions not amounting to a rebate on the employee’s wages, or (3) when a deduction to cover health, welfare, or pension contributions is expressly authorized by a wage or collective bargaining agreement. To read more about exempt employees, please see Labor Code, Section 221 and 224 (click here).

Additionally, an employer cannot deduct normal business expenses from an employee’s paycheck. Instead they must reimburse any expenses occurred by the employee. This includes any uniforms and tools required by the employer, personal cell phone and internet service used employment, and work related travel expenses.

Should my son become half the lawyer as those I have met at your firm he will be successful.

My oldest son just passed the Colorado Bar. I firmly believe that should my son Chris become half the lawyer as those I have met at your firm he will be successful.

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job and were very understanding of my sensitive situation.

I wanted to thank you.

I wanted to thank you for your assistance in resolving the matter with my employer. You listened to my complaints, kept me involved, provided guidance and were diligent.

I am so grateful to have had Mr. Matt Curtis help me with my very tough case.

This is my first time working with an attorney and I am so grateful to have had Mr. Matt Curtis help me with my very tough case. Many well-known lawyers across the state wouldn’t take my case but Mr. Curtis gave it his all. He is a very hard worker and so driven. If it wasn’t for his dedication, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Satisfied Clients Praise Andy Dragovic

My husband suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and stroke. We thought all along something didn’t seem right with the care he initially received. After seeking advice from multiple firms who told us there was nothing they could do for us, we told our story to Andy Dragovic at Sommers Schwartz….

I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout this process.

I’m happy to put this case behind me once and for all. I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout this process. Thank you, Tad! I’m happily employed now and am enjoying a fresh start.

Please extend my gratitude.

Going through this process was a totally new experience for me, but the way you and your firm conducted it was certainly reassuring. Please extend my gratitude to all the people involved.

I will confidently recommend Sommers Schwartz.

You were on a short list of attorney’s I considered to represent me in this matter based on your standing in the legal community and I have no doubt that your reputation brought this matter to a resolution more expeditiously than a less highly regarded attorney would have been able to accomplish.
