    Default Employeer Owes Me Four Paychecks

    I'm located in Texas and my employer owes me 4 paychecks. What are my options. Can I handle this on my own or do I need legal representation?

    Four paychecks? What does the guy say when you want to be paid? I would be pretty pissed too if I worked four weeks and didn't get paid! I suggest you contact your local Justice of the Peace and seek civil litigation against this dead-beat!

    Or you could file a complaint with the Texas Workforce Commission, which would be simpler.

    I didn't think about that. I would suggest the OP follow this advice.

    I would take the suggestion & file a claim with the TWC. However, another option would be to file a lawsuit for the unpaid wages usually in small claims court. (An employee has two choices.)

    Thanks for your responses. I will take all into consideration. I have also manages to arrange an investigative news coverage of the story with a local tv news station. Any ideas of what I can expect.
