Can you work without filling out any paperwork?
Question Details: I got a job through my friend, had no contact with any management. I go in my first day at a restaurant in a hotel as a "busser". I worked 9 hours straight without a break, no training or orientation and didnt fill out any paperwork. I'm not in their system at all and not sure if I'll even get paid. How long do I wait?
If you are not paid in no more than 2 weeks (in AZ, paydays must be no more than 16 days apart, so they can be every other week [biweekly] or twice a month [semimonthly]) then you are not being paid on time or at all. At that point, you could sue them for the money you earned. Even without paperwork--though they legally should have done paperwork relating to your hiring--they must pay you for all work you did.
