He dictated all our hours, duties, and demanded alot from us and although I was told I would be paid a percentage of the clients fee, I was never told what exactly the fees or percentages were.

I did not receive my final paycheck from my last employer. I

Hi. I did not receive my final paycheck from my last employer. I was laid off on end of the day February 21, 2017. I should have received my check on February 24, 2017. The employer claims he mailed my check to my home that Friday night. I still did not receive the check. I had texted another employee and the employer told him to respond to me that the check was in the mail... that was last Wednesday. I went to the employer stating that I didn't receive the check. What are my rights in getting my final paycheck?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will and full-time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I asked the employer if he could issue me a regular check and he said he can't do that because all of the taxes were taken out of the original check. I asked him to stop payment on the original check in order to reissue me a check. He claimed that he would call and stop the original check, but I don't believe he did so... I'm not 100% sure. Does he have a grace period before legal action can be taken against him?
