In NY State, there must be a weekly payday for manual workers. Employers can have semi-monthly paydays upon approval for manual workers and for clerical and other workers.

So you must be paid at least twice per month.

If you haven't been paid, then contact the NYS Dept of Labor in Albany.

There is generally a 2 year limitations period under federal law for a back wages claim to be filed in the form of a lawsuit and you can seek to recoup attorneys' fees as well.
