I went to work for a guy that I considered a friend in June. It was great, the business was doing well and the work environment was nice. When the winter months came the business slowed down and the environment got a bit tense. I was working 6 days a week when I was promised a 5 day work week but I wanted things to work out so I did'nt fuss. Eventually my employer tells me we have to talk but instead hands me a letter stating that my pay was basically getting cut in half. Please don't misunderstand I don't have too much of a problem with the business not doing well enough to pay me my wage but to do that in a letter I thought was disrespectful to me not only as a worker but as a husband and a father. I fortuantely found another good job in a couple of weeks and I quit. My former employer now refuses to pay me my last paycheck. I went to the place I used to work at to ask him if there was a check for me and he said no. The next day he leaves a message on my answering machine stating that he is talking to his attorny and wants to sue my for slander and insubordination (?)! I'm not trolling for free legal advise but does this sound grossly unethical if not illegal to anyone else but me? I am owed 6 days wages and I plan on filing an L&I claim against him. Thanks for any advice.
