When unpaid for work performed, generally, a good first step is to inform the nonpaying party and to try and get an explanation for why payment hasn’t been made. Often, nonpayment is the result of a misunderstanding or miscalculation. But, even when the nonpayment is intentional, talking it out and having a reasonable discussion with the nonpaying party, if possible, is usually a good place to start from.

But, if there truly is a payment dispute at hand, there will be a number of options available for recovery. For one, threatening a wage complaint or actually filing one with the Michigan Wage and Hour program might be a good start. Or, if the nonpaying party isn’t your employer, pursuing a claim in small claims court might be an option. Or, in a situation where the claim for payment exceeds $6,000, pursuing litigation might be necessary.

With the above being said, this is a bit outside of my area of expertise. So, for the most clarity on how best to proceed, it might be helpful to consult with a labor local attorney. They’d be able to thoroughly review your situation and advise on how best to proceed.
