One of the joys of the Internet is the ability to learn all about someone’s problem and see how they handled it and what their options were so that if you were in a similar situation, you would know exactly what to do. This is especially true of workplace drama, where social taboos around money and work can keep employees and coworkers from communicating with one another when something is up. But that’s where the Internet steps in, and in this case, we have a Reddit story that maps out just what your options are when a former employer refuses to send you your well-earned final paycheck.
This Reddit thread serves as further proof of the fact that some employers think they have way more power than they actually do. Here, we have an employee who was fired for constantly calling out wage theft and who still has not received their final paycheck. Now that it’s over two weeks late, the Redditor is considering filing a class-action lawsuit, per the advice of many folks in the comments section, because their ex-boss keeps coming up with ridiculous excuses about why that final check has not yet arrived.
