My employer resently witheld funds from my final paycheck to cover the expense for a saw purchased on a particular job, and the misplacement of the reciept for that particular tool, thus far deducting over 200.00 from my final check. Is this a legal manuver???????????????????

If you owe him the saw, or a receipt, he may be able to hold on to it until you get him the paperwork. If you have a beef, you could go to the State Labor Department.
