  • Should I take it to court?

    Here's the situation. [From Toronto, Ontario, Canada]

    During Boxing week, I worked 113 hours in one week and only got paid 80.
    I was promised $400 as a cut of the commissions since I was demoted from sales to cash to help out because one of ours girls got fired. The other cashiers got $300 as promised but I still didn't get mine.
    I was also supposed to get a raise for the month of December and I only got $7.15 instead of $8.50 per hour.

    All these were not paid for STILL ... and I'm on my bosses case about this everyday. He said they're on it but I don't believe him. The other day he told me he's quitting because he has found another job.

    What should I do? What steps should I take in order to get my money? I am thinking I should take it to court but It's such a long process.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I really need some good advice...

    Taking the issue to Court

    You don't need to go to court. Instead, you can contact the Ministry of Labour office for assistance. You can learn more about Ontario's wage and hour laws and the locations of the nearest Ministry of Labor office at:
