Date: 7/23/2021 5:50 PM (PST)

I worked one full day at an employer, the Boise Stage Stop and they say I don't have a check is that they said I had to work two days before I got two paychecks is that correct?

Hi Jennifer,
Thank yo for your question. From what you posted, it appears that the business you worked for is located in Idaho. If you believe you are owed wages you may contact the Idaho Department of Labor and file a wage claim:
https://www2.labor.idaho.gov/whclaim
If you need help filing your claim please call 208-332-3579 from 8am to 5pm mountain time. If you have questions, comments, or problems with this website, please send an email to: wageandhour.bureau@labor.idaho.gov.
According to Idaho Labor Department website:
"What are the penalties for employers not paying wages?
Administrative Penalties: An employer who fails to pay all wages due after separation of employment may be subject to penalties of up to $750. If the wages are paid before the Idaho Department of Labor files a state lien, the maximum penalty shall not exceed $500. Idaho Labor determines the appropriateness and amount of any penalties awarded.
Penalties or damages plus attorney's fees when complaints are filed in U.S. District Court: If the court issues a judgment in favor of the plaintiff, the judgment may include all costs and attorney fees, and the plaintiff is entitled to recover from the defendant either the unpaid wages and penalties or damages in the amount of three times the unpaid wages found due, whichever is greater."
also
"Idaho law requires that if an employee quits, is terminated or laid off, all wages then due must be paid the sooner of the next regularly scheduled payday or within 10 days of the separation (weekends and holidays excluded). If, after separation occurs, the employee gives the employer a written request for earlier payment of all wages, the employee must be paid within 48 hours of the employer's receipt of the written request (weekends and holidays excluded)."
I hope this information is helpful.
