I resigned from my job due to personal issues ( I did not give 72 hours notice ) on Jan . 24th . I did contact them to mail my check by e - mail , til they said I was " missing " a key ( which I sent by mail with tracking ) & could not mail out my check until I pay them . I agreed to deduct the fee ( $ 50 ) from my final check and gave them the OK to do so on Feb . 1 & they said they would send it out . I did not hear from them in awhile , and as I waited I contacted them on Feb . 12th , and they apologized stating it was their fault and finally I receive my check in the mail on Feb . 15th . Do I have a valid claim to file ? Which proof is needed to send out to the labor board , just my final stub and postmarked date ? Is my claim valid starting when I resigned or when I gave the OK for the deduction of the key ?
