Full Question:

At my previous employer, it was stated at the time of hire and also during the training period that if we did not score a 90 or better on the assessment test after the training process we would be terminated. Once I received the call from the training department that my score was below 90, I left knowing I know longer had a job. Can an employer withhold the earned vacation pay or wages earned?

Answer:

The answer depends on the terms of the training period established by the employer that defines whether the wages or vacation was earned.
