I have left company A and joined company B. There is a written agreement between me and Company A that I should serve 60 days notice period. But I have served only 1 week notice period and joined company B. The company A has not paid my last month salary saying that I have violated the agreement.
What are the options I have now?
The only "option" you have now is to consult, in private, with a labor/employment lawyer on this..

The answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
I agree, it is a good idea to consult with an employment attorney. It sounds like Company A violated the terms of the Labor Condition Application by not paying you your last month's salary so you could file a complaint with the US Department of Labor Wage & Hour Division. However an employment attorney, perhaps working in concert with an immigration attorney, would be well-suited to review your agreement (which may or may not in fact be a contract) and advise you on the best course of action. Good luck.

You need to contact the DOL regarding the non-payment of your salary and you should visit a labor/employment attorney to review your agreement with your prior employer. Good luck to you.
