Can my boss hold my last paycheck?
My boss will not give me my last paycheck because he says I owe him money. He will not provide me documentation that I owe him or how much. Is there anything I can do?

You could sue him. You boss does not have a right to withhold your paycheck, even if you did owe him money, UNLESS the terms of the promisory note or other instrument by which you borrowed specifically said that anything you owe may be offset against a paycheck. Otherwise, if your boss believes that you owe him money, his proper response would be to sue you for the amount owed; however, he still would need to pay you your salary or wages.
