I quit! But...

April 23rd, 2008 (04:45 pm)

My boss just finally gave me my paystubs today... I haven't gotten a paystub (until recently) since January.  Apparently, she was paying me a dollar less than I normally receive an hour.  I was suspicious of this, as I was working the same hours but was getting paid less.  I hoped I was wrong, and that she had just adjusted my claim from 1 to 0, so I was thinking that maybe I was just getting more taxes taken out of my checks, until today when I reviewed my paystubs.

I have a question: Is what my boss did legal?  I might mention that my two previous paychecks were at my normal rate, with paystubs to go with them.  I also have paystubs from before the 1st of the year proving my rate was one dollar an hour higher than what she had been paying me.

Do I have a leg to stand on here?  And can I take this information to anyone?

Any advice is highly appreciated.

Beyond what Jeff said, if you have any paperwork from a job offer that states what you should be getting paid, that helps. Otherwise you're in oral contract territory, and your old paystubs go a ways to back that up.
