Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.

You should file a wage complaint against the employer for failure to pay wages. You can file that through your state's Attorney General office here:

It's a free process that the government undertakes to force employers to pay wages when they are owed.
