A: Employers are limited with respect to items they are permitted to withhold from your paycheck. They are generally permitted to withhold certain taxes and benefits that you have agreed to. Otherwise, they are not permitted to withhold additional amounts without written authorization from you. In the event of a violation by the employer, the employee is eligible for triple the amount of unpaid wages in a lawsuit.
