    Does anyone know what to do with an employer who doesn't pay?

    I gave notice in the beginning of October, tried to quit at the end, that's one full month not two weeks and then the guy begs me to work through November too. So I've been out of work for almost 3 months and still waiting on the paycheck for November.  He keeps saying he'll pay me next week...but... is there some resource to help people collect wages earned and not paid by a former employer?

    The only thing I can think is to threaten to sue the employer. Not sure if paying legal fees would be worth the one pay check, but it is worth threatening him. You may want to contact the better business bureau. Most employers do not like negative feedback from the bureau. Good luck!

    I would call the labor board and see what they have to say.

    Put your hands on his shoulders and say, 'let me explain.'  Then sharply raise your right knee directly into his tender bits.  If you really wanted to go the whole hog, whilst he is writhing in agony on the floor, you could look through his wallet and or office cash box, only taking what you are owed.

    There are no guarantees if you start a lawsuit, unfortunately, no matter how obvious your case appears to be. I'd say save your legal fees and just move on and sever all ties to that employer. Report the company to the Better Business Bureau (possibly) and definitely call the attorney general's office and talk with them about it.

    Good luck, whatever happens! Don't let it ruin your life--it's not worth it. Keep moving forward with a  different job as soon as possible.
