Employment Law/State regulations regarding new job description
Expert: Margaret M. deMarteleire - 1/28/2013
Question I work for a non profit organization who provides supports for people who happen to have developmental disabilities. My question is, is it legal for my organization, who resides in NY state, to ask their management staff to replace any funds that go missing or can not be accounted for? They've recently re-penned job descriptions and are asking management to sign their new job descriptions.
Answer Mike - Well, they can ask, but they cannot require repayment if they do not know how the money went missing. Deductions from paychecks for monies that are missing is an illegal act. Even if you sign something, which I do not recommend, you have the right at each instance when a deduction is proposed to refuse to allow the deduction. Employers are not permitted to make any other than standard deductions (taxes, insurance, union dues, etc.) without the written consent of the employee.
