An employer may not withhold earned wages except in a few very specific situations. If by "hold back" you mean the employer always paid 2 weeks after work was performed, such delay is generally allowed, though you should receive a paycheck for the last 2 weeks of work shortly after leaving.

If you never received pay for 2 weeks of work you performed and it is at least one pay period after you ended work, then you very well may have a claim against your former employer.

While I hope the general legal information above helps, it does not replace an attorney consultation. My firm handles unpaid wage compensation cases - you are welcome to call for a no-cost phone call of up to 10 min, or contact another attorney of your choosing.
