I'm a medical sales rep for an international company. I was scheduled to be paid by direct deposit today (Sept 7). Yesterday, at 8pm a notice was sent out that the compensation department didn't finish the paperwork and we were not going to be paid. Further info to follow. Today I received am email stating they need more time to calculate everyone's pay so we will be paid in 2 weeks. Our pay schedule is in writing.
I have payments set up to automatically be withdrawn from my checking account each payday. Since I didn't get paid and was notified that I would not be paid after business hours yesterday (8pm) i was not able to stop the payments. My checking account is overdrawn and I have about $200 of over draft fees. Can I hold my company responsible for the overdraft fees?
I use my paycheck to pay for childcare while I work (I travel overnights). I will not be able to pay for childcare until I get paid again (next scheduled payment) in 2 weeks. This means that I can only work during school hours and will loss income through lost sales.
What are my rights? I'm in good standing with my company, ranked # 2 nationally. It is the entire U.S. salesforce who didn't get paid today (about 2000 people) so It's not me being singled out- just a very poorly run company.
Thanks in advance for any direction that you can provide.
