  • Unpaid in New York New York

    I was working for my employer A (who has a bi-weekly pay schedule)for about a year, when the company supposedely got evicted and claimed bankruptcy. On the last payday (I happened to be on a personal day,w/ direct deposit), prior to the eviction, the company issued paychecks that bounced(I didnt recive my d/d). Then whats left of employer A merges with employer B, and I report for work at employer B's place of buisness(employer B has a weekly pay schedule). I was told at that point that due to the bankruptcy proceedings that I would recive the missing funds after the proceedings had concluded. I continued to work for employer B while getting paid in personal checks (mind you I am a W2 employee, and my personal "pay"checks are now for net,not gross). Now whats left of employer A splits from employer B and starts employer C(I now am employed by employer C, who also has a weekly pay schedule). At this point I am still getting paid in personal checks (still net not gross). Now, at the end of the second week that I am at employer C , the last payday goes by again and I am not paid. So I get a lil peeved and do some checking... I contacted the applicable bankrupcy courts and the county clerk. I cant seem to find any record of a bankrupcy filing. At the clerks office there buisness licence is still valid. Something is beginning to smell... So I do a lil snooping and find out that the owner of the company lives in NY, yet all his assets are in FL (where he has his HOUSES, viper, and hummvee). I know FL is an one of those Homestead states, however I seem to have found some sort of loophole where you cant hide behind it if, you creditors are coming after you for a criminal act. Is not paying me a criminal act(I feel victimised)?
    Everytime a paychek dosent materalise I get a lame excuse... I'm sick of working, and not knowing when Im gonna get paid. I'm worried about my taxes not being witheld. I live check to check, I'm behind in the bills, and to add insult to injury my bank acct is only free with d/d. What to do? DOL, Sue, Go postal?

    Forget what assets the guy might own in another state. It just isn't relevant to your claim. If you aren't being paid for the time you work, file a claim with the state DOL.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
