My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: NY
Does anyone know what I can do...my wife drove me to pick up my last pay check at the job I got hurt at and my boss was handing out paychecks to everyone, when he got to me, he said, "Oh, go talk to so and so," I went to the person he told me to talk to and he said my check was locked up in their safe so I went back to my employer and asked him to get my paycheck from the safe and he said, "You're not worth one second of my time, I'll send it in the mail when I feel like it."
Is this right? I really need the money and I worked for it, he's just mad that he had no workers comp insurance and is now going to be in trouble...can he withhold my pay like this? What are my options here? TIA
