i have worked for an employer in the state of indiana for 6 years. i was terminated on april 18 for no reason other. my employer told me he would give me two weeks severance in addition to the vacation i had coming and commission for april's sales. the following paydate was may 3 and he sent me an e-mail saying i would not be paid severance, vacation and commission until the next paydate of may 17. can he withhold my final pay until the second paydate following my termination? if not what can i do to get paid now?
