I live in KY, the company I worked for is in GA. I resigned and returned their computer and their cell phone in good working condition. The owner told me that once they receive the equipment I’ll be paid. I sent it via FedEx, they received it yet will not release my last 2 checks. What recourse do I have?
Send a letter demanding that they deliver your last 2 checks to you, or else you will file a lawsuit against them. If they do not respond, you might need to hire an attorney who specializes in business law and collections to recover the funds. Unfortunately, however, the money spent to collect the paychecks will likely be as much as or more than the paychecks themselves.
