Company is unique services and logistics owned by Wanda Curry-Shepard , I have a few legal issues with her and her company but the most urgent is her failure to pay me again this past fri ( along with several others )
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

I certainly understand. This appears to be a classic breach of contract. A breach of contract just simply means that one party was obligated to perform and they have either have not performed or have said that they will not perform. Typically, the aggrieved party is entitled to be returned to the same position they were in before the breach. In your case, in addition to the $ that they owe you, they should be paying you for any late fees or bounced checks that accrued as a result. There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for advising of a breach of contract (click here). It's a bit easier (and cheaper) than going through litigation and I have seen it be effective in the past. If this doesn’t work, sadly, the only other option is to either go through an informal mediation or file a lawsuit in your local court.

One other thing you will want to consider is filing a wage hour complaint with your state department of labor.

If you click here and fill out this form, you could complain directly to the state about your issues.

This is a copy of agreement
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

I see what you mean. If they have not paid you, they should be paying you. Now, because you're an independent contractor, you may not be able to file a wage claim with the OH Dept. of Labor. However, this doesn't mean that you couldn't go to small claims court as a result of them not paying you what they agreed to pay.

I also have over a hundred hours worked a 2 week period .Am I entitled to overtime?
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

If you are an independent contractor, no. You'll just be entitled to the pay consistent with your agreement.
