Employer reversed final pay and is holding hostage

My employer issued my semimonthly paycheck as expected at midnight on November 13. Later that day, they declined to accept a grievance with workload, responsibilities, and a coworker I submitted and opted to terminate me. Then on Monday 11/16 they issued a reversal on the paycheck. I have made several utility and bill payments when the money was received, which have overdrawn me due to the reversal. The employer is not responding to my requests to distribute my check as expected. I believe this is an FSLA violtion. What are my options?

Your options depend on several factors. There might be a possible FLSA violation, which depends in part on whether you were properly classified as an hourly or exempt employee. You are obviously due to be paid for the time you worked. If you can contact me with more details about your job and how you were classified I can provide more information.
