Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

Failure to pay wages when due is against state law. So you can report them to the WA Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division for them failing to pay wages when due. So you can file a complaint against her for that and for the damages you suffered.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
