    One in the Hole-Holding check

    Is is legal for an employer to hold 1 week's check in NY. When I started, I was told that we would be paid biweekly and 1 check would be held (indifinitely from what I can tell). We are also paid one week behind but that is separate from the 1 week being held. So when I started on the 1st, the first normal pay day was the 13th (did not get paid); next normal payday was the 27th (did get paid for the 9th-20th). I've got no issue with the one week behind but the one week kept until you quit/leave/something seems wrong. Couldn't find a direct answer in NY Labor Law Sec. 191 or in Fair Labor Standards Act. If it matters, I am a salaried employee

    It is perfectly legal for them to pay in arrears. It is not legal for the employer to not pay you for the time you worked from the 1st through the 8th.

    I would contact the NY Dept. of Labor.
