Never got paid

  1. Last month I started my very first travel assignment. I never got a dime from it. When I asked the travel agency about it I was told it covered my hotel. Well my stipend was $600 and my hotel cost was $415. My overall earns was supposed to be $1100 a week. I worked a full week to get nothing. Is there anything I can do?

    File a wage claim with the Labor Board.

    Which one though? The state I was working in or the state the agency is out of?

    So you broke the contract after week 1?

    If so, read the contract for what you may be liable for...

    They said it wasn't working out. They didn't feel I was fast enough. I will say what I did gain from it is knowing what to expect from travel nursing. Where I'm at right now I haven't had any issues. I might end up chalking up to lesson learned...not sure.

    Very inexpensive lesson. Unfortunate it happened first assignment. Kudos for continuing.
