Can I sue my employer?
I work as an RBT in MD. My company has not been paying me on time and when they do it is usually not the correct amount. Now they are trying to change their sick pay leave policy to avoid paying me wages. The quote on it "
Paid Sick Leave Employees are granted 3 days/24-hours of paid sick leave at the commencement of employment and at the beginning of the calendar year every year thereafter. Any balance of unused sick leave will not be carried over to the next year. "
It was my understanding that you got the 24 hours when you started employment but not the owner wants to say that I was earning it over time.
Someone please help me. I am desperate need of advice.

You are entitled to full and timely payment of all wages, by law. If you are not being paid in full, or not on time, you may have immediate claims against your employer for the unpaid wages, plus prejudgment interest, attorney's fees and costs, and statutory damages up to triple (3x) the unpaid wage.
Call an experienced wage and hour litigator to discuss your rights.
