Can an employer withhold wages for disciplinary action?

No, an employer can not withhold wages for disciplinary action.  All earned wages are required to be paid on the scheduled pay date.  Note: employers are required to deduct certain deductions as required by law or permitted through a collective bargaining agreement.  Deductions, other than those required by law or collective bargaining agreement, require the employees signed written consent for the deduction.
