I have changed the figures you mentioned as 71 hours at $8 an hour comes to $568.Re: unpaid wages
Dear Ms. ABC,
I am writing to point out an underpayment of $410 on my paycheck for $158 issued on 06/10/11. This check covered the period from 5/26/11 to 6/08/11.
As you remember, Your company hired me on May 29, 2011 at $8 an hour and I worked for 11 days (71 hours) during that period. However, I got paid only $158 for 19.75 hours.
I was expecting a check for $568. I worked those hours between May 29, 2011 and June 8, 2011. I calculate the amount of wages owed to be $410 based on my rate of pay and hours listed above.
On June 10 I requested a further check from you but I have not yet received it. Please rectify the underpayment as soon as possible.
Thank you for your cooperation.
If you were paid $158, she appears to owe you $410.
Let us know how you get on with that.
