A friend of mine had been working for transportation company (contingently company A) as a long haul truck driver in PA state before leaving it for another one (due to the poor working conditions in company A). He was employed at company A for only 1 month, which comes up to 4 weeks, meaning 4 pay cycles.
However, while employed at company A and after leaving, he never received a single pay check from the company. Trying to connect with the company's audit department led to nothing, no one answers phone calls, no one responds to emails. Going directly to the lawyers for some $6K-7K doesn't sound reasonable. Is there may be some Labor Unions where the company A behavior can be reported?
My question is: what are the legal rights my friend can apply to the company in order to get at least his salary back?
