I worked as an intern this summer for a London based company who is starting up here in the US. Myself and the two other interns were verbally told that we would work 40hrs/wk at a pay rate of $10/hr. We kept asking for a written contract but kept getting the run around. Now, the company is refusing to pay our total amount owed (I'm owed roughly $3,500) and instead they will only pay $1,000. Is there anything I can do?

Assuming you worked in their office in New York and assuming the company is (also) registered in New York State then yes you have a recourse against them. My colleague handles such cases please contact me directly and I'll refer you to him.
