Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.

Yes you should file a wage and hour complaint with the US Dept. of Labor.

They investigate and will get you paid here.The employer may be fined for wage violations.

File here

I wish you the best, ***** ***** had to go through all of this.You have a legitimate complaint to be paid, please file here and seek compensation for all these hours you worked.

Thanks again.
