  • Severance Pay?

    I was offered a month of pay from my previous company when they were outbid by another company for a job in an industrial facility. I received a letter in the mail from my previous company that states " We are encouraging each of you to stay the course and continue to provide the level of service excellence our customer has become accustomed to. We will communicate throughout to ensure you the opportunity to make the right decision that is right for each of you when the time comes and the options are presented. We will compensate all site personnel who stay through the plants termination of our services with one month of additional salary. This incentive is being offered as a token of our appreciation for your participating in this smooth transition of each of our programs". It has been 30 days since we transitioned and 60+ days since the letter was mailed to all of the employees. My previous company is now telling us that there are some loose ends that need to be tied up before we can get the one month of pay. There wasn't anything in the letter stating that problems would have to be solved before we get paid. Please advise what we can do to get our previous company to pay us? Thank You

    While the one month's salary is promised to you, it is NOT earned wages for actual hours worked, and threrefore, the Federal Standards Labor Act does not make provisions for a time limit on when this has to be paid.

    You may want to contact a labor law lawyer and get a free consultation if you can to see if they can speed things along.

    Let me know if you have further quesitons.
