Please be patient, as it can take as long as 90 days to resolve some wage disputes.
If your wage claim is accepted, correspondence will be sent directly to the employer. The employer will have two (2) weeks to either mail a check directly to you or dispute the amount claimed. If no response is received, a final notice will be sent to the employer allowing one (1) additional week for response. If no response is received after the final notice, a copy of the Wage Claim file will be sent to you along with a letter recommending that you consult an attorney or pursue your claim in the appropriate court. If the employer disputes the amount claimed, the Indiana Department of Labor will make a determination based upon Indiana law and all evidence presented. If a determination cannot be made, you will receive notice along with a letter recommending you consult an attorney or pursue your claim in the appropriate court.
