  • Hold last Pay check Nevada

    I was recently let go by one of the doctors I bill for due to Financial Reasons, he brought his billing in house. I own a small medical billing business and did the billing for him for the last 2 1/2 years. We did not have a written contract but since billing for him I have been paid 6% of what I collect for him. I was let go on August 4th, to date I am still getting the run around from his accountant that they are auditting my work and will get paid when the audit is complete. I was just wondering if I am suppose to be paid the last day of my employment with him or if it is legal what they are doing. How long are they aloud to have to complete the audit?

    In your state they should have paid you immediately under the circumstances you describe. File a complaint with the state DOL.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Nevada - when an employer discharges an employee, the wages and compensation earned and unpaid at the time of discharge are immediately due and payable.

      If an employer fails to pay a discharged employee within three days of the employee's discharge, the employees wages continue at the same rate from the day discharged until paid or for 30 days, whichever is less.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        However, OP you say you "own a small medical billing business"; that would generally imply that you were a vendor of the company, not an employee; the fact that your pay was based solely upon a percentage of collections would also be a flag to me that IC (vendor) status might be the case here. The state (and federal) DOL only takes claims from employees or those ICs who were misclassified (should have been employees).

        Were employment taxes withheld from your remuneration?
