My current employer paid me $2500 to relocate to Tempe AZ from Chicago, roughly a year and a few months ago.
I'm leaving, though I have an agreement as part of that relocation that if I leave / quit / am terminated within 18 months, I must pay it back in full.
I was under the impression that when I did this, I'd simply owe them a check or something along those lines; When I spoke to my manager, he mentioned it would be with-held from my final paycheck.
This works out beneficially for me, as if they simply pay me fewer wages on that paycheck then I suppose I won't be paying as many taxes, and possibly it'll be paid pre-tax, but it brought up a question in my mind, of whether this is actually something they're supposed to be doing.
In Arizona, is there any statute on whether an employer can withhold expenses owed back to the company, like a repayment of a reimbursement fee from an employee's final paycheck?
