My Boss Hasn't Paid Me. What can I do?

First off, don't worry.  Fortunately, you live in Colorado and the Colorado Wage Act is a powerful tool to use against employers who wrongfully withhold wages. If your last paycheck is being wrongfully withheld, you could be entitled to all of your wages plus another 125% of your wages as a bonus.  The best part is you won't need to pay your attorney a retainer as the Colorado Wage Act has an attorney fee provision. That menas that you could get a lawyer without paying a dime up front.    

Bonuses, Vacation Pay are Still Consider Wages Under Colorado Law

There are many ways an employer can pay an employee in the employer-employee context. Many employees enjoy the benefit of bonuses, compensation, and vacation pay as compensation. It is important to note that while a bonus might not be deemed a traditional wage, under the Colorado Wage Act they are considered "wages" or "compensation".  That means that if you haven't been paid your bonus, you can go after your employer under the law for that unpaid bonus.  

Independent Contractor or Employee?

Employers routinely misclassify workers for their own benefit. Recently, more and more employers are classifying their workers as independent contractors in the state of Colorado to save money. If workers are classified as independent contractors, employers do not have to pay for health insurance, workers' compensation insurance and unemployment benefits for their workers and employers a lot save money on taxes. This classification only benefits the employer.
