My boss is withholding my pay and I’m not sure what to do as it’s a relatively informal job. How can I prompt him to pay me for my time?
I’m currently working as a caterer in NYC. I’ve invested many hours catering during special events. I’m owed $563 in total and I was supposed to get paid on the 15th of January but my employer keeps delaying sending me my money. Turns out, he has a reputation for refusing to pay his illegally employed workers and there’s not much they can do about it. As a US citizen though, what can I do to make sure he pays me? Threaten to take him to small claims court?
