Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Did you work as an independent contractor for this company or employee?
Okay the claim would be a breach of contract based upon the contracts between you and the large company. The Dept. of Labor advocates on behalf of employees for owed wages but you are owed payment for services as an independent contractor. I would consider sending a demand letter for payment for the amount claimed and the reasons payment should be made. Perhaps consider engaging a local employment attorney for a low flat fee to represent you to compel cooperation.
I hope that helped. Please ask any follow-up questions. Please rate my answer so that I may be credited for my time. I thank you in advance for your cooperation. Thank you.
