Topic: College paperwork
June 26, 2019 / By Issachar Question:
They said that I can't even work there until the paperwork is done but I had already worked there two weeks before they realized this! I came in for my check and they told me they couldn't pay me because none of my paperwork had been finished by them, so technically I have never been an employee. They told me they were rushing my paperwork and would pay me once it was finished... It's been 5 days & I'm a poor college student. There is 10 bucks in my savings account and no gas in my gas tank, I need food and I have to pay bills! What can I do?!
I did my paperwork and gave it to them. but they never did anything with it...

Ask them for an advance on your pay while they get the paperwork through unless they expect to have your check in the next day or so.
In reality, it will probably be quicker to wait for them to pay you.
But you could file a complaint woth the Labor Comission of your state.
or Sue in Small Claims Court
Best to talk to them, explain your situation and ask for their help.
