Income tax withholding. The phrase “Internal Revenue Code” means the federal tax code in effect on Dec. 31, 2010. (Act 91, L. 2011)
Payment of wages. Beginning July 1, 2011, in addition to any other penalty, employers that intentionally or knowingly fail to pay employees their wages, or employers that intend to defraud employees by not paying wages, will be criminally liable for fines ranging between $2,000 and $10,000 for each offense. Each pay period wages remain unpaid constitutes a separate offense. If employees are owed at least $2,000, the nonpayment of wages is a class C felony; if the amount owed is less than $2,000, the offense is treated as a misdemeanor. The court is authorized to provide employees with restitution. Alternatively, employees may sue their employer for their unpaid wages. (Act 146, L. 2011)
