I work at a child care center. A parent came in asking for his child's things. So I gave them to him. I was later informed that, that parent still owed money to the center for childcare by my boss and was told that the money would be taken out of my pay. Can they do that? (In Tennessee)

As a general matter, if there is a written agreement between you and the employer for deductions of this nature from the paycheck, then it is permissible. Otherwise, an employer cannot take this money out of your check.
