I recently left a doctor's office where I was working as an Lab Nurse straight from completing my degree. I started there in Jan and since May 15th the company has been missing payroll. Scheduled pay days are the 1st and 15th of the month but since May the staff including the physicians has been getting paid when the company has funds to pay us. Which is usually a week to a week and half. Or if they have some funds then the office would come around and ask who can wait for their paycheck and who need their check now. I still haven't received my last check and when I asked about it the office manager replied that she would contact me when its ready. Working for this medical practice has messed up my career with this company because I had to resign abruptly due to missed pay. More employees and physicians has also resigned because of this ongoing matter. I have back bills with late fees that I'm still trying to catch up on and loans I took out to stay afloat.
Is there some type of civil suit I have against this company? I don't have the funds for a lawyer but maybe I could get the process started at my local city courts and represent myself. Any type of legal advice would be helpful.
