The Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law (WPCL) requires PA employers to pay their PA employees all compensation they are due. Compensation includes wages, holiday, sick and personal days, bonuses, commissions, and severance. If they don't they are subject to a penalty. If you have documentation that you are entitled to the holiday (perhaps from your employee handbook?) and documentation that you weren't paid (from your paystubs), the best thing to do is file a claim with your local District Court. That court is set up to handle small claims, and you can represent yourself, so you won't spend more on your lawyer than you get in damages.
