My sister and I worked for a woman for approximately three months; my sister received only partial pay (for one week), but I have received nothing.
The (former) employer interviewed and hired us in her home (which is in Illinois), she conducted several work-related meetings there and used her home address as her not-for-profit business address.
Our wages were set at $10.50 p/hour. Just FYI: We assumed that we were hired as W-2 employees (wherein the employer was responsible for witholding taxes & FICA).
She has refused to return phone calls or discuss this matter.
