Prepare a letter to the employer requesting your wages in writing. The letter should state:

  • That you are making written demand for the wages that you believe are due. (Be as specific as possible about the dollar amount, number of hours, etc.)
  • That you demand payment within 7 days of the employer's receipt of the letter.
  • That if the wages are not paid within the 7 days that you intend to file a Wage Claim with the North Dakota Department of Labor and Human Rights.

Make a copy of the letter for your records. Then send the letter to the employer. It may be helpful to send the letter by Certified Mail so that you obtain written notice that your letter was received.
