This is Samuel. I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

Can you explain what you mean by "empty paychecks," please. Thank you

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi are you qualified to answer for New York State law? (I see you are with Maryland Bar). I mean weeks of time went by, for example 3 specifically in December of last year where I had zero nights of work. Again I was an EMPLOYEE, not IC. I will be taking legal action on this employer.

I had called the DOL/AG numerous times regarding this, money being left out of my meager checks, etc etc etc

You know, I will opt out and perhaps there is a NYS licensed professional to assist you. They will get with you, if there is.

Good luck

Thank you. I hope I was not charged since you could not help me.
