    Default Didn't get my Paycheck over $27.99. How should I react?

    -Work for a company for 10 months, no issues.
    -Office in USA but company HQ in Europe.
    -We get paid once a month, on the 20th. We submit our expense reports on the 5th of the following month and the payments get sent out on the 20th.
    -Sometimes payments are late so I waited until the 25th to bring it up to bosses.
    -Get the runaround.
    -Finally on the 29th (I have to pay rent) I put up a big fuss about it to my American manager so he calls the Europe HQ to figure out what's going on.
    -Today (30th) we figure out what the issue was. I expensed a cab ride that the company decided I wasn't supposed to. Mind you we expense stuff like this all the time and I had several other items on my expense report that could supposedly be "questionable."
    -Haven't had an issue with this ever.
    -Because of this they HELD my whole $xx,xxx paycheck.
    -Now not sure if I can pay rent as I wait for this to be resolved.
    -WTF? How should I react?

    By law, in the states, it's illegal for the employer to withhold a paycheck for any reason.

    So you admit to ongoing fraud and wonder why you've not been paid?

    Why use this board to ask this question? Like you would get a real answer.. and if you have any reasonable IQ, you should already know what you should do...
