Why didn't you leave after the first two weeks? No check, no work. Then I'd hand him ass in court.
Yeah you could try that pete_roth, but I don't think you'd get far.
Payroll works likes this in most companies:
pretend you start on Monday, and work M - F.
Monday, the 1st being your first day, and Friday the 5th being the end of your first week.
So 1 week, then 2nd week, and in the 3rd week payroll is processed. You're paid at the end of the 3rd week, or Friday the 12th in this case.
Now that we're into the 4th
week, however, yeah I *could* just not show up. To be honest, there's very little work here to do. That's symptomatic of the fact that she's not very organized, doesn't come into the office, etc etc etc.
If you're not getting paid, you need to quit so you have time to find a real job that pays big American dollars. Court or none, you can't stay there.
Yeah I was going to leave early today to go to a temp agency, but the boss said she'd stop by. So, I'm here waiting to see if she actually comes through. I'm not raging-upset but I'd prefer to quit in person and work out getting a paycheck in person. If this person is as snaky as I suspect, trying to work out payment over email or normal mail just won't happen.
