I started my job in august and in october i was promoted, from my first pay check in november to my last pay check in january i was being paid shift leader pay rather than assistant manager pay, i didn’t realize that this was happening until december, december is when i brought this issue up with my employer and they claimed i wasn’t able to be paid management pay as i had not completed my food training course. However, not once did they tell me this was a required certification, i had absolutely no idea i needed to have this. My employer told me i would receive back pay for this ( however i don’t have that in writing only, he only said this over a phone call as they’re scared of getting sued and won’t email/text). I’m wondering if i can go to the labor board and persue my back pay for this. Thank you.
