WAGES NOT PAID FOR 1.5 YEARS

I worked for a companyfor 8 years as their sales person. I was not paid any wages from (approx) June 2001 to Dec 2002. I continued to work with them, even travelling overseas on assignments. I was always told, "when things get better you will be paid".

How can I get my wages for the 1.5 years, do I have a legit claim.

PLS HELP.

SOL on Wage Claims

Wage claims are good for a long as six years in New York. The six years would be measured from the time the wages became due, that is, the pay day for that particular pay period. Each unpaid paycheck is, in essence, a separate claim.
