Customer Question
I was not paid...

I was not paid for services during October, 2017 of $ 4,405, I have documentation on what is owed

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

They do not return phone calls or emails, I was to be paid on 6 Nov by bank transfer and has not happened

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full time at will
