There is still time to file a claim with the TWC for unpaid wages. You could also talk to an employment attorney in your area about possible retaliation claims in addition to the unpaid wages if you haven't already received the wages.

Sorry this happened to you.

Questions for you:

1.) Do you have a written employment contract? If yes, an attorney needs to read it.

2.) Any witnesses or emails, etc that prove the firing was for asking to be paid on time.?

3.) How big is the company?

4. ) where you ever not paid overtime or did they deduct for time that you actually worked?

Also, you could possibly file for your owed check and/or unemployment with the Texas Workforce Commission. You can file over the phone or on-line.
