Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
First, I hope your son was able to finally get the money.......but in regard to a legal claim, there's probably not much there to go on UNLESS he believes he was a victim of discrimination based on race, sex, age, color or disability. If that's the case, then he could sue under discrimination (state and federal) laws. But, if this is not the case, and he was told they didn't have enough money to pay him the wire, then that's really not actionable --- regardless whether or not they really had the money.
It could have been a mistake, or a misunderstanding, or something else. Also, not being able to identify the person who told him this could be problematic.....but could be overcome if you subpoena the video surveillance tapes from the store on the date in question (assuming they use surveillance that isn't recorded over after a certain period of time)
If you need anything further, please let me know. Thanks.
