All worthless! I am the source of all the world's anguish! Famine! War! Disease! Crime! All me! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
I'm on mobile and can't see where you are from, but I know in the US you have labor boards to take care of these things. even if it wasn't something the company was required by law to offer you, but it was promised as part of your wages upon separation, it needs paid. Unemployment takes these promised wages into account when making a decision on Unemployment Benefits, and this kind of situation can really mess things up.
I think you can go ahead and sue without people freaking out and saying everyone sues too much. It's justified
I'm curious and can't find it online : what does "stiff sb" mean?
It basically means to screw somebody over. To cheat or swindle a person. To not pay someone what is due. For example, you can "stiff somebody on the bill" and that means to not pay the bill or pay a fair share of the bill and the other person is stuck with the cost. In this case, the boss stiffs the OP by not paying him what is owed.
