I resigned from my position as resident DJ at a club in Fort Lauderdale fl. Because pay issues. It was always being paid late and finally not at all. I also was not being paid for additional work being demanded of me. The money owed is closed to $3000 plus. I final quit because when I asked if I could get my paycheck for the previous week I was told, (no lie) we already paid you. That was enough for me. I professionally finished my shift and went home and sent a letter with my resignation. I still had 2 weeks regular hourly pay and several additional hr overtime pay still owed to me. I work there for almost 5 months. I learned tonight the bar is closing.
You need to hire an attorney NOW.
This is because you need to make sure that the owner of the bar does not liquidate the assets before paying you.
Time is of the essence.
