Can You Sue Your Employer for Not Paying You?

It is possible to sue an employer for non-payment under certain circumstances. An employer can withhold money from a person's pay in some cases.

If an employee owes the company money, the employer can deduct this from the paycheck. If this is not the case, however, and an employer keeps an employee's paycheck, the employee can sue the employer in civil court. Filing a lawsuit can be expensive, so employees should determine the costs and benefits of going forward. Hiring a lawyer can add even more expenses, so it may be beneficial for a person to represent themselves in court.
