Hi, I have been working for this company for three months and I had a contract with them for the first two months, but after the two months I was asked to continue working for another month and I just received my payment for this month and it's not even close to what I am supposed to get, I worked three overtime and my daily rate is 386 and my overtime rate is 500+ (not certain about the exact amount but it's not more than 600) now they are telling me that I'll be paid once all the work has been QA'd and accepted, I don't understand I have done my work and the other team is taking time to QA the work, how is that my fault? I don't understand I have worked 22days plus 3 Saturday but I got paid 7000 how do I get help from such instances and if they gonna pay me the remainder of the money how guarantee that they will pay, I need assistance I really worked hard but now??
