I was working for a small private practice which began experiencing significant financial problems shortly after I started with them. I signed a contract for a salary pay. My employer made various excuses each pay period about why he wasn't able to pay, but kept promising it would be coming soon. Meanwhile I kept working, and he was collecting payment from insurance companies for the work but not paying his employees. I finally quit after not seeing any money. He owes me around $7,000 back pay. I hired a lawyer to write him a letter demanding $ or we would sue, the employer ignored it. I couldn't afford the $2500 to take him court (seeing as I was already about to lose my home due to lack of income). I filed complaints with the appropriate state agencies about labor law violations.But have gotten no response. In 1/11 I received a W2 from this employer claiming wages and taxes paid to me in 2010. I quit working for him in 2009 and he didn't even pay me my wages then! I know this is fradulent. I filed claims with the IRS and other state agencies. Again, no one seems to care. Meanwhile, this employer is apparently back up in business again (and not bankrupt as had been told to us). What can I do?
