I worked for a small company for four weeks and did not get paid whatsoever. I tried contacting them after work ended but they no longer pick the phone and do not respond to my voicemails. There was no written contract, the agreement was all verbal. I believe I am supposed to be paid between $2,500-3,000 for my work. What should I do?
Yes you can sue. However, you would probably get a quicker resolutions by filing a complaint with your State's Department of Labor.
While I am a licensed attorney I am not your attorney unless and until we sign a retainer agreement and as such the foregoing does not create an attorney-client relationship nor does it constitute legal advice that may be relied upon as the facts of your case are unknown to me at this time.
