Do you have an employment contract/agreement signed by all parties?

*If yes, please be advised that the Wage and Hour Bureau does not delve into employment agreements/contractual obligations. If you have a signed employment agreement and/or contract, such contracts are better addressed in a court of law to determine the contractual obligations of the parties. Aggrieved employees have a private right of action to sue an employer to recover wages per N.C. General Statute 95-25.22(b). Wage and Hour investigators do not determine contractual obligations as it would, in essence, be practicing law without a license; the investigators are not licensed attorneys. Our bureau will not request or review any contracts between an employer and/or employee.


*Pay periods are based on how often you are paid; daily, weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly.

*The beginning of the date range for the hours you worked that you weren't paid.

*The last date, in the date range, for the hours you worked that you weren't paid.

*If you are owed for more than one pay check, what was the first pay day the employer missed?

*Last Pay Date wages were due
