company withholding paycheck / W/H paycheck

1 United States Review updated:

NO PAYCHECK! I have never been SO infuriated in my entire life. I quit my job about a MONTH ago, and waited for my paycheck to be mailed, i waited two weeks. Finally i called and asked the store manager if my pay check was in the store and if i could come pick it up. she said "oh well i wasnt here the last two days, but the hiring manager wrote down that it had been mailed". I thanked her and hung up the phone. I waited a week and a half and STILL NO PAYCHECK! I the called again two weeks later and talked to the guy who she said wrote mailed about two weeks ago. HE SAID THAT HE HAD JUSSST MAILED IT THE DAY BEFORE! So the store manager had lied to me, I waited abother week and NO PAYCHECK! and i know some of you may think that it takes a week or two for mail to be delivered, but it olny takes a few days at most. and THEY DO have my correct adress, as i had quit before and recieved that paycheck promtly. It has been over a month and they are giving me a hard time about my paycheck..which i need the money! im a poor college student. I didnt give them a two week notice, as I had MAJOR problems with an employee..this isnt right! now i have to call corp and have the resend one and void that check...well guess what...THE WOMAN IS UNREACHABLE! I'VE TRIED ALL DAY AND JUST GET HER VOICEMAIL! holly god when will buisness's posses good buisness ethics and values..un lets see...NEVER

    You can sue under federal law and you may be awarded treble (that means three times) damages. Ask them if they know that. And then, of course, there's punitive (punishing) damages. Might add up to a lot ... and you could probably find a lawyer to do it on a contingency.
