Today, my old boss stiffed me on a large sum of money he owes me. I tried to contact him and point out that he legally owes me the money, but he won't answer his texts or his phone, and the managers say he changes the subject whenever they bring it up. FML

I think you can go ahead and sue without people freaking out and saying everyone sues too much. It's justified

I would take legal action, your boss is an asshole

Chances are his boss owes him for work done, not a loan

#36 really? Go sit in a fridge, you need to chill out.

Oh no! #36 didn't up vote my comment because they disapproved of my joke! My whole life is rendered meaningless! My husband! My pets! My family! My career! My education! My hopes! My dreams! All worthless! I am the source of all the world's anguish! Famine! War! Disease! Crime! All me! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

get a life n stop being a bitch

That's an ironic comment coming from you, death32.

This comment thread should be called "Spot the guy with a stick up his ass."

I'm the OP, and I'm a girl, and the money I'm owed is my annual leave, which was to be paid to me when I quit. I'd never been able to take a holiday, as my boss never agreed on the times and wouldn't let me take paid leave, so yeah I'm pretty angry...

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 agree. Seems like your boss isn't going to do anything unless forced to. So force him.

Sounds like one for small claims court to me.

Well... Thanks for reminding me to never lend people money! :D

I pretty sure this is more likely money owned from time worked.

Take him to court.

Take legal action, let's see how he changed the subject then

Sounds like a lawsuit to me

You should contact a lawyer OP, it's assholes like those that give a bad reputation to a company

I'm curious and can't find it online : what does "stiff sb" mean?

In this context it means the boss refuses to give him the money.

son of a b!ţ€# . stiff because he stiffed op.

or it could stand for shitty boss. i dont know

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.
