I have a few issues with my previous employer. I was terminated for what they say was insubordination. Payday has passed and they refuse to release my check. They claim I stole two company jackets with receipts for the jackets... however, those jackets were kept in an unlocked coat closet.
The GM says that once I return the jackets, then I can get my check. This, I'm sure, is illegal.
I honestly don't remember how many hours I worked that week, and being a server, I know the check isn't for much... but it's still my money.
I filled out the Wage Complaint form and sent it in.. What steps are ahead for me? what should i prepare for... and if the company I worked for has really good lawyers... is this even worth it?
Thanks in advance.
