  • Need help to get paycheck Georgia

    Hi I am having a problem with the chiropractor' s husband since I
    resigned my position( of 2 1/2 years of service) after my hours were
    cut from 37 to 27 because of their decision to hire someone at a
    $9.50 higher than my pay was. Also about 2 weeks after they reduced
    the hours they told me that they could no longer afford to pay my
    regular wage and reduced it by $3.50. They said that it was because
    my position had changed which was somewhat true. Instead of doing
    everything including billing and tracking of money, I was told that I
    was to do just the medicare billing and train the newer employee on
    our computer and billing systems. I resigned Monday December 11th. I
    went in Friday to pick up my check and was told that they had no
    money to pay me the $$ that was owed to me and that I would have to
    wait until more money came in. I called yesterday to get my check and
    was told that I could not get it until I meet with the chiro's
    husband on Friday at 4:30(his convenience and without pay)and he had
    a few questions to ask me. I told him that I really needed my check
    and that I have no one to keep my son. He said no check until
    meeting. Can he do that and has anyone had something like this happen
    to them of so what happened? They will not tell me anything in
    regards to this meeting. HELP needed in GA!
    And Thanks in advance!

    Did they give you any idea when the check would be available? GA law does not specify when a final paycheck must be released but they cannot hold it indefinitely.
    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.

      They want to meet with me this Friday at their convenience and discuss something. They would not tell me why or anything. Even why they are holding it trully.

        Well, it can't hurt to go to the meeting and find out what they have to say. In many states, twelve calendar days after the last day of work would be well within the requirement to submit final pay on a resignation so we're not (yet) talking about an unreasonable length of time. But do come back and let us know what they say.
