Paycheck Issues & Disputes

Contact Our Fort Lauderdale Wage Attorneys Today

Paycheck issues and problems with payroll are more common than most people realize. All employers are required to pay their employees for services rendered, but payroll mistakes and wrongful business practices lead to millions of dollars in unpaid wages—and thousands of lawsuits—each year.

Florida law dictates that employees are entitled to receive a detailed paycheck each pay period or within one calendar month (30 days) of the previous pay period, though this can vary depending on your employment agreement. Your paycheck should clearly show your earned wages, deducted taxes, and other relevant information. If you have a paycheck issue or dispute, you may be able to take action against your employer.

Call USA Employment Lawyers at (954) 266-0908 to speak to our Fort Lauderdale wage lawyers about your situation. We offer free, confidential consultations.

Understanding Florida Paycheck Laws

State laws govern how employers may pay their employees, as well as employees’ paycheck rights in Florida. However, certain issues, such as the frequency and schedule of wage payment, are not covered under Florida state law.

In Florida, an employer may pay employees by:

  • Cash
  • Check (without fees or deductions)
  • Direct deposit (with written employee consent)

There are currently no laws in Florida regarding payment upon voluntary separation (quitting), discharge, or firing. Additionally, there are no regulations regarding deductions that can be taken from an employee’s paycheck. For example, an employer may deduct or withhold wages to cover the cost of required employee uniforms, tools necessary for the job, cash shortages, and more. However, these deductions cannot be taken from an employee’s paycheck if such a deduction will result in the employee earning less than minimum wage (if the employee is covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act).

However, it is important to note that some paycheck rights are covered by federal law. If you are dealing with a paycheck issue, contact our firm to discuss your legal rights and options with an experienced attorney in Fort Lauderdale.
