Failure to Pay Wages Due at Time of Termination

Failure to Pay Wages Due at Time of Termination

You are entitled to the wages you have earned, even if you have been fired or laid off. Your former employee cannot hold your paycheck or delay too long in paying you the wages you are owed.

Every state has different laws regarding the payment of unpaid wages upon termination. For example, in Virginia, employers must send the last paycheck on or before the date you would have been paid if you still worked for that employer.

When an employer fails to pay the wages you are owed after the end of your employment, we can help you. At Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., in Washington, D.C., we have extensive experience handling unpaid wage issues. Our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience protecting the rights of employees. We can provide you with the advice and support you need.

Have you still not received the wages you are owed after the end of a job? Contact us to learn about your rights and options.

Unpaid Wages When You Leave Your Job

Whether you were fired, were let go or left your job, your employer is required to pay you the wages that you are owed. This will include any base pay, whether hourly or salaried, as well as any overtime if you are a nonexempt employee. Depending on the state you are in and your agreement with your employer, you may also be entitled to unused vacation or personal time.

Our attorneys will review your case and help you pursue any and all wages you are owed from your former employer.
