What recourse does an employee have under Arkansas law if he or she is unable to obtain his or her final paycheck from a former employer?

If an employee is unable to obtain his or her final paycheck from a former employer, the employee can file a complaint with the Arkansas Department of Labor, Labor Standards Division, if you make less than twenty-five thousand ($25,000) dollars per year, or if you are owed less than two thousand ($2,000) dollars in unpaid wages. If you do not meet this criteria, then you can also file a lawsuit using a private attorney or in small claims court.
