Generally, if you have not been paid properly you can recover any unpaid wages accrued over the previous two years.  In some cases, the law allows you to recover unpaid wages that accrued more than two years ago.  Additionally, in virtually all situations, if an employer has not paid you properly, you are entitled to double the amount of your actual unpaid wages AND the employer is required to pay you for the attorney’s fees and costs associated with a lawsuit.
