I was locked up 400 miles from home. Is bosss liable?

by TruckerWife

I went to jail for misdemeanor marijuana possession 400 miles from home&my truck was impounded. My boss came and got the truck,but did not post my bond.


Is my employer liable for me being stranded after my release to get me home?

Also, can he keep my last paycheck for impound fees after he fired me???

Please help

Cool thanks for the comment.He's also keeping my last paycheck.I've already filed with the Labor board because I know for a fact that its illegal to hold my earning for towing costs.
