How Much Time Do I Have To File A Claim After Termination?

If you were not paid at least the minimum wage or you were not paid correctly for your overtime hours, you must file a wage claim within two years from the date the work was actually performed. If your wage claim is for straight time wages or other benefits your employer promised to pay, a claim can be brought as many as three years after the work is performed. Since your employer is only required to keep his/her records for a period of three years, it is more difficult for the Department of Labor & Industry to collect your wages as time passes. So you should file a claim as soon as you are aware that you may be owed additional wages.
