Question
I am working for a company in Toronto.
My Contract says I will be paid twice a month. 15th and last day in the month.
Soon after I took the Job the employer decided to change the paydays from 31. to the 10th of the next month and the 15th to the 25th.
I complaint but was told this is company policy.
Now the pay is 3 weeks late. Today is the 23. Nov. 12 and I and everybody else in the company did not receive any pay covering Oct. 15.to 30. and Nov. 1. to 15.
I complained to the owner but received just excuses.
10 Employees
employed since 2007.
Any help how to go about is reatly appreciated.
Thx
Jean

Answer
Contact the Department of Industrial Relations, Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (“Labor Commissioner”) and tell
them you want to report your company for late or non payment of wages.

Expertise

I can answer questions about payroll laws and payroll tax laws and Human Resource laws and agencies. I can answer federal payroll and human resource law questions and most states; I do not have a knowledge of the local taxes for cities and counties within the state. If and when I can I will try and send you the website where you can reference the answer and where you can obtain more information as well as a contact number if needed for that particular agency. Some agencies I have worked with are IRS, Department of Labor (federal and state), Revenue Canada (and provincial governments), Inland Revenue, OSHA (0ccupational Safety and Health Administration); Social Security Administration and National Child Support as well as other agencies in Payroll and Human Resources. Some Laws I am particularly familiar with are FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act), FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act ) , QDRO's, QMCSO's, and other support orders and garnishments, USERRA (Uniformed Services Employment and Remployment Rights Act,PPA Act (Pension Protection Act of 2006, As well as most other employment type acts. I am also well versed in the Title V Civil Rights Act and the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
