Despite the "times being tough", YOU DESERVE TO GET PAID ON TIME! Contact the Dept of Labor and Industry and get your employer reported asap- in the meantime, tell your employer your plans to report- this may do the trick!

My boss has been going threw law suites and we the employers have stuck around getting our paychecks a week after pay day. This has now gone on for a month now and a week has turned in to weeks! Before he would give us what he could during the week. Now he is avoiding our calls. What can we do to get our money asap?

If you are a non union employee, the employer can do what he pleases. The law does however, indicates employers must pay all employees for all physical hours work within a timely manner, unless there is a set schedule of pay for example, pay is once a month or every 2 weeks or you are an exempt employee. Factory workers must be paid at a weekly basis. A rule of thumb is to be paid within 5 days after your completed work schedule or file a complaint with the Hours and Wages Division and they will investigate and assist collecting all wages owed. Remember under the FLSA they must keep time records of work and you should do the same.

Sounds as if he is having cash flow problems. Start to look for another job, as it's easier to get one while you are still employed. Then you have to tackle him about it.

My Husband was pretty much laid off the week after Christmas (12/27/2009) and his boss still has not provided his final paycheck. It has now been a month (today is 01/27/2010) and his X-Boss claims the company is not making any money therefore he has nothing to pay him with. To top it all of my husband can not file for Unemployment until April??? Whats that BS??

Does anyone know what rights we have to try to obtain his final paycheck?

Seek other employment behind his back, and once you have accepted a better position elsewhere, you get to not show up on time aarr. What a shame.

I wouldn't complain too much, considering the economy.  Times are tough, and at least you're being paid... Something not everybody can say lately.  Even the company you work for.

Try writing a letter to management that documents your concern, and how it may affect the employees.  Discuss the safety issues of people staying up late waiting for checks, when they should be home getting some rest.

Also suggest a direct deposit strategy.  That may be the best way to get it to the bank quickly.
