They committed a federal wage
violation by not paying you anything for your last day(s) or week(s) service to them. Since Florida does not have a state collection system, I'd recommend you file a federal wage complaint. Your other option is to file a small claims complaint, but then you have to pay money to file the claim and have them served and presumably spend a morning in court. My thoughts are, as such, that it would be easier for you to just file a federal complaint, which you can do here: http://www.dol.gov/wecanhelp/howtofilecomplaint.htm
Once they get notice from the department of labor
I'm sure they'll rectify the matter very quickly, because they do not want the department of labor breathing down their necks for certain.
