Representative Doore of Augusta would amend the definition of "overcompensation" by an employer to exclude compensation in the form of paid leave. It provides a definition of "employer." It changes the maximum amount an employer may withhold from an employee's pay to recover overcompensation from 10% to 5%. It prohibits an employer from recovering more than the amount of overcompensation paid to an employee in the 3 years preceding the discovery of the overcompensation.
