My last employer refused to pay me my last check. Later this month will be 1 year ago. How long do I have to try to get it from him and who will help me ?
I am sorry to hear that you did not get paid your final paycheck from your last employer.
The Fair Labor Standards Act requires that an employer pay its employees for all hours worked. Moreover, there is a law in Florida that requires that an employer compensate its employees for time worked.
After reviewing the information that you have provided, it sounds like you may have a claim for unpaid wages, but I would like to get some more information from you so that I can determine if you have a case. I recommend that you act quickly so that you are not precluded from recovering lost wages by the applicable statute of limitations.
