How much are you owed? are you asking for option to recover the money owed to you?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I am owed approximately $1671 for 1 weeks salary and $1000 in reimbursement expenses. I am not asking for an option to recover, I just want a legal response back to their email saying they are withholding all money due until they finish their audit.
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 4 months ago.

There is no basis for such a delay. The amount is owing, and undisputed. The audit has no bearing on the obligation.
