Can an employer pay cash for 3 weeks then on the next payday take all wages away because he didn't take taxes out of the 3 payments?

Question Details: He used an accounting program to do payroll then switched to an accountant. In the process, he paid 3 weeks with handwritten checks but did not take taxes out. Today we were supposed to get direct deposit but didn't because the accountant took the taxes out for those 3 checks. Therefore, I didn't get a check this week. Also, he doesn't give paystubs and doesn't pay overtime.
