They probably don't have enough in the bank to cover the check! Time to look for another job!
lol well he did let me go!
It depends what the laws are where the company is established. Employers, espeically small employers, may not have enough funds to cover payroll so it unfortunately, puts you in a position where you have to wait for there to be enough funds. You may be entitled to interest and any penalties you may incur due to your employer's funding issue. However, you may have to take them to small claim court for that. The problem with small employers and payroll is that they have to have enough money to pay you and pay your withholding taxes at the same time. US withholding taxes are typically due within 3 days of payroll. If those are not paid, the IRS can simply walk into town and up to your company and chain the door shut. They can, they will, they have.
However, if your boss is just being a ****, I would call the Department of Labor if you live in the US.
thank you for the info. he also never gave me a handbook or had the labor laws posted. I am in California and I read that if you are fired or let go the employer must have your final check ready. if not he must pay me 8 hours a day up to 30 day until paid.
Yes, it's breach of contract. It might even be considered constructive dismissal.
You might contact your local Labor Relations Board. They might look into a complaint. But, I would say it's time to look for a new job, if there are any available.
Just ask them if they would mind waiting a few hours for you to start work on Monday morning.
It depends on your employment contract & terms of payment. If it stipulates the pay day period then i guess this is legally binding.
And if there are no specific reasons for the delay, one shoudl not have to"Beg" for one's cheque that is rightfully earned. If it's more a habitual than a isolated financial problem, you may wish to consider looking elsewhere.
I'd be looking elsewhere
the place I work for short pays me every now and then but that is through human error. Theres not mine. They made a mistake about 6 weeks ago and I have been chasing that (get paid fortnightly) and I noticed my pay was wrong again by my bank balance. Now will have to wait till next Wednesday to get my pay slip so I can find where they short payed me and get on to the pay lady again.
I actually went into office and said to receptionist every time I call her she is at a ******* meeting. I don't believe it I think she is ******* avoiding me. Well she went and had a word with her and she came out to speak with me then.
I always take a photocopy of my time sheet before sending it in.
my boss let me go because his business dropped 50% in sales. he said that he had to let someone go and ba
