I have recently quit my job and have not received my paycheck, what should I do?

I quit my job recently and my last day was Sept. 2, 2016. I had given a two week notice and have not received my last paycheck. The most recent payroll was Sept. 9, 2016 a week from my last day and today is the 16th, two weeks from my last day. And I have already contacted my employer about my paycheck twice. What should I do? The company is also private I don't know if they work differently.

Private employers must pay you all wages due to you including earned vacation on your last day of work if you gave at least 72 hours notice of your separation. The payroll date is irrelevant. You should consult with an employment attorney immediately to assess the value of your case and your options for pursuing remedies. You are likely entitled to waiting time penalties equal to a full day's pay for each day they are late up to 30 days. You are also entitled to attorney's fees if you have to litigate your claims. Good luck.
