One day at work I was talking to a co-worker about my probation, saying that I was off probation and my boss overheard. My boss asked me if I used to be on probation I admitted I used to be but I completed it and have been off since September.
A few days later, he asked to speak with me, saying that money is missing and since I was a new hire I had to repay that money ($75 dollars) in order to receive my paycheck, and also sign a paper that I quit. I told him I didn’t take the money—I swear I didn’t—but he insisted I sign and bring him a money order for $75 and until I sign the paper I can’t get my paycheck.
I didn’t have a choice: my rent and car payment were due and I needed my paycheck. So I brought a money order and signed the paper. I had a final check due and I went on payday with cops standing by to avoid him accusing me of anything else. He still refused to give me my check. The cops even asked him why he was holding my check. Again he stated money been missing and accounts charged that were not supposed to be and he was blaming me. I haven’t been there for two weeks! Can I do something about this? He told me he would win because I have a past police record but I honestly didn't take the money.
