  • Employer not paying for 5 weeks Maryland-New Jersey

    I work as an IT consultant in Maryland for my NJ based employer.He made me sign an agrrement that I'd work for him for one year.We then signed one agreement after that, which, supercedes the earlier one,and has no condition of one year.He's refusing to pay me, citing the reason that I'm quitting job before one year
    I got another job and gave him two weeks notice.He didn't pay me on my regular payday and would owe me 5 weeks pay on the day I leave..What's my best bet now,DOL or a labor lawyer.?

    Thanks,

    If, in fact, you were an independent contractor (not an employee), your only recourse is the courts. Contact an attorney versed in contract/employment law.

      I was actually not an independent contractor,rather I was hired as a fulltime employee on W-2,irrespective of the money my employer made from the client.I guess that I can contact DOL ,right?

        If you are an hourly employee, the employer must pay you for all hours worked. You can contact the U.S. Dept. of Labor, www.dol.gov, for more information.

        Good luck.

          There is no need to go through the federal bureaucracy if you don't have to. As an employee, you can file a claim with the Dept. of Labor in the state in which you performed your services.
