Hello and welcome to Justanswer! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed lawyer with over 18 years of experience. I am reviewing your question now and will get back to you momentarily. Thank you for your patience.
How are you doing today? I am very sorry you are experiencing this problem.
I understand that you are seeking options. What result are you seeking?
What have you attempted so far?
Thanks for asking about the phone call option. It's a great feature and I highly recommend it.
If you select that you will get a call shortly from a colleague of mine which provides some additional feedback to what I am providing to you in chat.
OK, you should have a prompt on your screen.
Is there anything else that you would like me to consider before I provide an answer to your question in chat?
Thanks for that information. I am finishing up your answer and will be getting it to you very shortly.
Your answer is ready and you can read it below! After you review it please let me know if the answer is clear and if you have any follow up questions for me. I will be happy to answer them!
I would begin with a final written demand with deadline and threat of lawsuit. This can help bring about a settlement, show the court good faith, and build a record.
You can threaten and then pursue complaint with the labor department and state court complaint.
It helps to prepare your case with a good narrative or story of what happened. This helps focus the presentation of the facts and arguments. It is often useful to have a chronological timeline of events with facts and back up evidence (e.g. e-mails, texts, photos, witnesses)
You stand to recover not only your actual losses (compensatory damages) but also interest, costs and legal fees. on occasion special damages (punitive damages) are also available.
I would proceed with counsel on commission basis. In your situation, I also think that you would benefit from local representation. https://www.avvo.com/find-a-lawyer is an excellent resource that lets you find a local lawyer by location and practice area!
You can also easily search court cases using google scholar by jurisdiction and terms. That site is easy to use (like google) and is also free! Here is a link https://scholar.google.com/ I find it as useful as paid databases which charge hundreds of dollars per search.
To hire locally you can do so using justia.com and superlawyers.com
We cannot offer representation per site rules.
I wish you the best. You are welcome to follow up on the answer as needed and keep me posted.
Have I answered your question to your satisfaction today or do you need any clarification? Kindly let me know, thank you.
I outlined options to proceed. You remain able to ask any follow up you need.
