Can an Employer do this?

My Dh took a loan from his company to move out of state and have a better paying job. After being there a month, they took the job he moved there for away. He has now been there 4 months going on 5 soon and he is about to quit (Friday is his last day). Can they legally hold his last check since he is still repaying them?

sure they can, and I'd bet it's somewhere in the paperwork he signed.  when our parent company changed, it changed our payroll cycle.  they offered to advance us two weeks pay, with the details for repayment over the next 4 checks.  if our employment terminated prior to that, they would take the balance due out of the last check(s).

I checked through all of the paperwork we have from the loan agreement, and found nothing stating they would hold his last check upon termination or if he quits. So I didn't know if they could legally still do that without having him sign something when they issued the loan.
