I'd bring it up, in writing, with Joe and attach a copy of the erroneous pay stub. Then let it go and whatever happens, happens.

Yeah, I'd do one last effort and let it drop. Bummer it ended on a sour note.

I'll think about it more today. I may email Joe a copy of the incorrect check stub and ask for the amount. If I don't get a response, I'll drop it. I don't have the time or energy to pursue it further. My own business keeps me busy and I make a good living. That part time job with Don & Joe seemed like a good opportunity to make some extra money. It simply didn't work out. Oh well.

You want to keep suffering? Pursue it.


You want to move forward with your head held high? Let it go.

Create some fake letterhead with a made-up law office name and send them a formal request for your unpaid time. You probably won't get the $75 but it might put a good scare in them and hey, that's worth $75 right there.

Go to glassdoor and review the company to warn others.

File a complaint with the state labor department, alleging underpayment of wages. Let them do the legwork. They'll pay up rather than hire a lawyer and go through the administrative headaches.

I agree with Bobsell. It costs nothing to file a claim with your state department of labor. You should get your money and you might stop this company from doing this to other employees.
