what can I do if the main boss has them with him and he leaves on Thursday and dosent come in on weekends, and he dosent mail them. there are five of us that they are doing this too.
Gary,Thank you very much for your reply. Unless the next regularly scheduled payday has passed, there is nothing you can do as your employer is within its legal rights not to pay you until that point in time.Once your next regularly scheduled payday passes, as it will tomorrow, your recourse is to file a claim with the Texas Workforce Commission as noted above. The TWC will recover your unpaid wages, plus potential penalties and interest.Alternatively, you can file a lawsuit in civil court. Prevailing plaintiffs on such claims are typically entitled to reimbursement for costs and attorney fees, which make this a practical option for many aggrieved employees, depending on the amount in dispute.To locate an attorney in your area who can help, see here: https://www.mytela.org/TE/index.cfm?event=showapppage&pg=members&configid=157&showfullpage=1Again, please feel free to let me know if you have any further concerns. It would be my sincere pleasure to assist you further if necessary.
one more question, we are paid 24 hours aday, and we clock in and clock out to standby, and everything is through a different company called nova time and is recorded, can the company legally go in and change our time to 12 hours and not not pay us 24 hours that has been recorded?
