Pay, pay stubs,experience letter not being given by company A

Asked over 1 year ago - Miami, FL

Company A held my H1 and I was working for Client XYZ through a middle vendor V on a EVC model. Vendor V has not paid my company A for the past 3 months. Company A was not paying me for 3 months and they rudely told me to find another employment if I am unhappy. I went ahead and changed my employment to Company B after giving proper 2 week notice period as they needed. Now company A is not giving me my experience letter, my pay stubs nor my pay. They said they will provide all these once they get the money from Vendor V.

My questions are:

1. Can I take company A to court legally to obtain my pay,stubs and experience letter?
2. What options do I have to get my rightful money back?

Thanks! Please help!!

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . 1. They are required to send you a W-2. If they didn't pay you, you can sue for back pay. Sorry, you can't make them write an experience letter.

    2. Hire a labor/employment lawyer.
