Hello my name is matt. I worked for a business called property 1 Preservation. I worked there for roughly two months. The first month I was making about 500 a week. I was paid bi-weekly through the cash app. The account which was deposited was my fiances. The second month my fiance left her job of 13 years for what we thought would be a better opportunity. The first 2 weeks we made almost $1200 between the two of us. The two weeks preceding we were paid $538. There were only two days we didn't work which was christmas and New years. My significant other and I worked everyday from 8am to about 7pm. We maintained foreclosed homes. After about 45 days we could finally access pur accounts payable and receivable after asking the admin numerous times. The two weeks we were paid $538 between the both of us we checked the accounts payable and receivable. There were numerous jobs that were payed $5 a piece or $0. I asked Tim stymus the man who hired me and promised me this golden opportunity what was up with the wages that were $5 and $0 he made it seem like it wasn't his problem and told me to ask his admin. His admin named rj then had an excuse for everything I brought to him. Who in their right mind would travel to a "job" an hour or more away and make $5 or $0. I have a claim with the labor board regarding the unpaid wages. However the documents they sent me don't correlate with the way we were being paid. How should I go about this. The owner Tim stymus is playing the victim in this case.
Hello Matthew. Thank you for contacting Business Consumer Alliance (BCA). I believe you have taken the right course of action thus far. In New York, wage complaints are filed with the New York Department of Labor Standards Division https://www.labor.ny.gov/workerprotection/laborstandards/workprot/collwage.shtm Is this whom you filed your claim with? Depending on the outcome of their investigation, further action may be necessary. In the interim, you should gather all documentation that will substantiate your case. i.e., the documents you state were sent to you that do not correlate with the way you were being paid. I also suggest meeting with an attorney that is well-versed in labor and employment law in the State of New York. I understand retaining an attorney is expensive, but I wanted you to know this is an option. Matthew, I wish you the best of luck. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can be of further assistance.
