There really is no effective recourse you have: by the time you could file any legal action or governmental (e.g. Dept. of Labor) complaint--let alone before it was actually heard--you would have been paid, rendering the issue moot. There is not way to practically vindicate your rights when pay is just slightly delayted. Obvously, if you are not paid for weeks, you could sue or file a complaint.

Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
