Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Is your husband not receiving his pay owed by his employer?
Have they indicated when it will be received?
Thank you for the additional information.
Your husband can file suit against the employer for breach of contract. If the amount due in back wages is less than $5,000, he should file his claim in Small Claims Court. Small claims court is designed to be "user friendly" so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court. You can get the necessary forms to start from the clerk of the court.
If he is employed by the University then he should also file a complaint with the state attorney general's office.
Sorry. Your question indicates it is pertaining to Missouri law. Thanks for the clarification.
Kansas does have a process for proceeding with the state for enforcement. Your husband can file a Wage Claim with the Kansas Dept of Labor. The following link has the form complaint and instructions:
