What can I do about unauthorized witholdings from my final paycheck?

Question Details: I resigned from my job on my own terms one week ago but my direct deposit final paycheck never posted. I contacted my former employer, who then stated that everyone was being deducted an amount for lost property. I never knew or heard of this lost property until today. I need to find out if it is legal for them to make a deduction for an item that I never lost or stole.
