    Dear Friends,
    Please help me. I work for a trucking company which holds my one week cheque and pays me every other week. No detention is paid. Sometimes I don’t get a straight load and they don’t pay me for my extra time. They took $97 for insurance from my cheque without my consent. One of the cheque was underpaid and after repotting it to the company accountant it’s still not been paid. They sent me an email stating paycut due to COVID-19. Please advise me or refer me a good lawyer in LA area.
    Thank you

    Honestly sounds like real small things they did. If this is just few pay checks.

    They took $97 out for what insurance? I get paid bi-weekly too. It's pretty common nowadays and certainly not illegal. You just have to budget accordingly. Shouldn't be too hard finding a lawyer in LA but it doesnt seem like you have much to fight for here. How much do they owe you?
     
    Trucking in Tennessee Thanks this.

    If it don't feel right now, it's not gonna be ok later. You will just end up losing more money week after week until you quit or get fired. Get out now while you didn't invest too much time.

    If you need a good attorney in Los Angeles, let me recommend Johnnie Cochran. That's who I go to when the chips are down
