A neighbor in Brownstown, MI, had his rights violated under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) when his employer withheld his final paycheck. His employer reasoned that since our neighbor did not return all of his equipment issued when he was terminated, they could commit wage theft. Our neighbor retained the Law Offices of Bryan Yaldou.
