Hello My previous employer loaned me approx. $9000 to pay off a debt for uni. It was agreed in an email to her and her accountant that I would pay this amount back at $300/month, with the potential of it increasing on Jan 16, depending on circumstances. This was the only agreement put in place. I have just receive an email from her stating that she wants to withhold my last months pay, and wants the remaining debt to be paid off by the end of today. My questions are: 1. Can she withhold my last pay to pay this debt off under Employment Law? 2. If there was no agreement besides the $300/month repayment, does she have any other legal standing in terms of repayment? 3. Can you get paid/owed overtime on a salary? I worked overtime and quite late at night on numerous occasions. I left the job due to duress and her threatening me, not due to termination in Jan 2016.
