can I be compensated?
I recently have been having problems being paid late from my job. My check is mailed to me and usually received on Thursdays. The first incident happened on Dec 14. I never received the original check. I contacted the HR dept and they told me I had to wait 5 days. After that I signed a waiver for them to stop payment on the original check and they sent a new one over night to my office. My next paydate was Dec 28 and was received in my mailbox on time that Thursday. My next paydayte (1/11) was not received. I contacted the HR dept who told me I could only get a stop payment 1 time during my employment and I would have to wait and see if the original was returned this time and if it was returned then the check would be over nighted to me. In the meantime my rent was late and I was already being threatned with eviction. I called everyday for 2 weeks and they were still telling me to wait which means it had been at least a month since I had been paid. I then decided to e-mail the CEO of the company and then is the only time that anyone moved to actually send a new check. I eventually was paid but at the end result was evicted from my home. My main question is would I have a case to be compensated for the extra fees and move due mostly to not being compensated by my company?

Re: can I be compensated?
Based on what you say here, you could file suit against them (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no attorney...you could try to collect all of the costs and damages that you suffered due to their behavior...
You could consult your nearest Department of Labor office to briefly discuss the issue with them first...you may also want to ask the company to put what is happening in writing and explain to them that you may have attorneys review the situation...
