d. Or, fill out the complaint form on paper and mail it
The Attorney General's office wants you to fill out the form online. If you cannot fill it out online, you can fill out a paper form and mail it to the Attorney General's office. Call the Fair Labor Hotline at (617) 727-3465. Ask for the paper form in English, Spanish, Portuguese or Chinese. (Be aware that you will first hear a long message in English before someone answers.)
Filling out the Non-Payment of Wage paper form
When you fill out the form, you will need to give information about:
why you are filing the complaint
when you worked
how much you are owed
Attach copies of documents like pay stubs and work charts to your complaint. Do not send original documents.
If you want to file your own lawsuit earlier than 90 days after the date you file your complaint, ask for written permission from the Attorney General's office when you file your complaint. Download an example of how to ask for permission from the Attorney General's website.
If you have any trouble filling out the complaint, call the Fair Labor Hotline at (617) 727-3465
Remember to sign and date your complaint. Keep a copy for yourself.

Why would I ask the Attorney General’s office to allow me to take my employer to court in less than 90 days?
If 90 days from the date you file your complaint is too late to take your employer to court, ask the Attorney General's office for permission to go to court earlier. You can ask for permission to start your lawsuit early when you file your complaint with the Attorney General.
