    Only what they owe you.

    Ok, so just so i'm on the same page as you, there is absolutely nothing that i can sue them for other than the difference in pay?

    Can i sue for negligence since my boss made up his own mind what i was getting paid and didn't bother to look into this? No. The boss wasn't negligent.

    You can always avoid the cost of an attorney and sue in small claims court, although your recovery will be limited to whatever the maximum amount small claims court can award in your State.

    Thank you Beth. In your opinion knowing the little you do about my situation, what do you think my best option is?

    Probably to sue in small claims court and avoid the cost of an attorney. There just isn't enough money involved to pay attorneys fees - you could easily end up with only a fraction of what you are owed. The maximum amount that most small claims courts can award is $5,000, although some are higher.

    You can contact your local court house to find out how to proceed.

    Ok thanks, i figured that they owe me close to 10,000.00

    Beth, a lot of people have told me to contact Wage an Hour? What is this about?

    That's not a valid option in your state. Florida does not have a state wage and hour commission, and you don't have a claim under Federal wage and hour laws. You are much better off with the court system; small claims would be best if your claim was within that limit but if it's not, you'll need to decide if you want to go with small claims and take less than is owed, or go through civil court and have to pay attorney's fees.
