I was part of a force reduction at my company and on my last day, they gave me my "final check" (a manual check) which was to include benefits. About one weeks later after I received my check stub in the mail, I noticed all my benefits were not paid by virtue of a "balance" showing on my check stub. I called the company to inquire and they said I was paid everything, but I said my stub shows differently. It appears they will not pay my "balance." 1. Given my scenario, how long before I may be entitled to three times the amount? I've been told something like 30 days by others, but I don't know if that is from termination date, my notifying the company, or some other means. 2. What happens if my check stub is wrong and the company just made that mistake. Because I was terminated and given a "final" check, am I entitled to the error amount? Thanks
