American Arbitration Association (2012)
Our client retained us after his employer cut his wages and refused to pay his accrued vacation benefits after our client quit. We brought an arbitration claim on our client’s behalf. The arbitrator found that our client’s employment contract required an agreement by both parties in order for the company to cut his pay and found that wages were not withheld as a result of a bona fide dispute. Accordingly, he ordered an award equal to three times the unpaid wages plus attorney’s fees and costs.
