Labor cabinet investigates Fleming Furniture for allegedly withholding employee pay

We’ve been looking into customer complaints at Fleming Furniture for months, but employees say they’re also being impacted by issues at the store. 

Kentucky Labor Cabinet spokesperson Dan Lowry says 12 employees have reached out to the cabinet since Nov. 5. He says investigators are now looking into complaints that the company is withholding money from employee’s paychecks.  

"If the employer were to withhold money on the pretense it was for medical purposes or for insurance, and then withholding it and not paying it to the medical insurance provider, that would be illegal," Lowry said.

This was an example Lowry used, but he wouldn’t give details on the complaints themselves. He says it could take weeks or months for investigators to find out whether there is illegal activity.
