Monday was the date of my hearing in labor court for my claim of unpaid wages when I worked at an Oscar gifting suite last February. The other party did not even show, and I was told the judgement will be in my favor! I am happy to finally get a little justice! Of course, this is not the end of it, just yet. They defendant can chose to appeal, and also, I may never collect the money I am owed, but, it's a start.
If you have worked for someone and were not paid what you are owed, I urge you to take your complaint to the labor department in the state you are in. If there's a chance they can do something to help you, you should let them know what has happened. Making your complaints online isn't going to help like making a case with the government will.
