On my sick leave check. I had accrued 40 hours of sick leave, which my employer paid if you don't use it. I told the accountant my check was past due, so she just wrote me out a paper check instead of a paycheck. She did not enter the taxes into the ADP system even thought what she gave me was a net check. That check is also not included at all in my year to date wages.
Also, I was told I would get all my unused vacation as severance when I was fired. That's not company policy. He just told me he would. They only paid me 40 hours of vacation. The other 32 hours were not paid.
Do I need to call them and demand these payments? I reminded him once about the sick leave taxes. He said he would fix it and never did. Not sure why I didn't get all the vacation pay, other than that he lies about everything.

Well, the taxes on the sick leave you can ignore fir now, and when you file your taxes you might owe some money

As for the unpaid vacation days, check your contract, company policy, and state labor laws.

Um, I have another job. My Dept of Labor says I have to ask for the money before filing a claim. I did on the sick leave taxes. I have not asked why he didn't pay all the vacation.

Failure to withhold and remitt taxes can have serious implications for the employer... Politely let them know this. If they decide to ignore you, let the tax man handle it.

You need to check your state law on unpaid vacation. This ain't as clear cut because your employment agreement likely controls.

Sorry. Bad assumption on my part. It seemed like you had an axe to grind and were on your way to wasting more time than it is worth.

Well he said he would pay all and did pay part of the vacation. Not sure if he could get by with lying about the rest when he already paid part.
I think I can guess the accountant's email. I'll email her and see if she responds.
