How do I file a complaint?
When you have been an employee for a year or more, you may be entitled to a pay increase.
If you are under 26 years old, you should be entitled in that case to a one-time pay increase of at least 2,500 percent.
However, you must have had at least 1,500 hours of paid work during the previous two years, and your wages should have been paid to you for at least the last 12 months.
In addition, if you have a disability, you are entitled to at least one-half of a 1,000 percent pay increase in the first year of employment, and you must be able to work for two years.
In the case of a disability for which you are not eligible, you will need to be able work for at most two years before you are eligible for a pay bump.
If your employer has not paid you your full salary, you can seek a back pay order that would help you pay the difference.
If the employer has been paying you more than you earned, you have the right to seek an employer contribution to your retirement plan.
If an employer has given you an incentive payment that has been suspended, or has reduced your pay in any other way, you also have the rights in a wage dispute.
Employers often withhold bonuses and other compensation in the form of incentive payments from employees, and this practice is illegal.
For example, in many states, an employer may withhold from a worker a bonus that is paid to the employee at a higher rate than what the worker is entitled to receive.
However a lawsuit in your state may be able change the way that the bonus is awarded.
In states that allow employers to withhold bonuses, the employer must show that it would be in the public interest to do so.
Some states have passed laws allowing employers to make these payments, which can increase your compensation.
However many employers withhold pay from workers in retaliation against them for union activities.
If a court determines that you are an employee and not an employee-sponsor, you would be entitled for a one percent pay hike in each year of your employment.
You can sue for back pay.
If it appears that your employer did not pay you as you were entitled, you need to file a lawsuit.
If, after the lawsuit, you received a letter from your employer that you were not entitled to, you do not need to sue.
You may be awarded a “deferred action” to reduce the amount of back pay you receive.
In other words, your employer will reduce the rate of your pay from the amount you were paid to a later date.
However the amount will be reduced, and it will be difficult to appeal.
A deferred action allows you to have your back pay withheld from your paycheck.
The law requires that you get a letter, but the letter is a formality.
You will not have to show up at the hearing, but you will have to explain why you have not received your pay.
