My last check had a 500.?? deduction on for a HSA that had been discontinued, and when I had contacted the HSA for final distribution it showed 124.?? placed in the account. I was releived of my position after I made the issue of retaliation known to HR after being assaulted on the job from a manager.
JA: Have you discussed this retaliation issue with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

If you feel that improper and/or illegal deductions have been made from your paycheck, your first action would be to contact your employer and ask that they rectify the situation.  If they fail to do so, you could then file an action with the Division of Labor Standards.

This is from the materials I provided:

"What Can I Do if My Employer Has Made an Illegal Payroll Deduction?

The United States Department of Labor is responsible for enforcing federal labor and employment laws. Individuals who have been subjected to deductions that are illegal under federal law, may file a complaint with the Wage and Hour Division of the United States Department of Labor. The Department of Labor maintains a list of Wage and Hour Division local offices.

Individuals who have been subjected to deductions under state law may contact their state’s Department of Labor. State Departments of Labor typically have local offices. A county may have its own local office. A major metropolitan area may have its own local office.

In instances where illegal deductions have been made both under state and federal law, the United States Department of Labor and the state Department of Labor should be contacted."

But like I said, before you go this route, please try to resolve the issue with your employer first.
