My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Mississippi
I started working for my fiance's mom (Jane) doing landscaping in June. We verbally agreed to a pay rate of $10/hr. In June, I worked 105 hours and only received $110 in compensation. The reason given for not paying the full amount is that Jane had not rec'd payment from her clients yet and couldn't afford to pay me. She stated that the remainder would be paid when the funds were available. After agreeing to this, I continued work and performed 35 hours for July.
I found out today that Jane did receive payment from the client and had the funds to compensate me for June. After confronting her, she terminated my employment. I am in an extremely tight financial situation and don't know what to do. I do not have a formal agreement with her for anything; although, I have recorded my hours that I worked and have witnesses to verify.
