Escalate to your boss. Emphasize as you have only had a few paychecks your need is acute. Make sure you have documented your convos with HR / payroll so you can show your diligence on it. Good luck

Legal haha.

You could go the legal route- and yes you would get your money. The issue is you’d very likely lose your job. There’s softer approaches (escalating to your hiring mgr) that should get you your money that I believe are highly preferable

Don't keep emailing the same individuals or same general mailbox. Escalate to their superiors. Ask your boss to help too. Forward your prior email chains so the bosses know that their underlings failed to handle the issue sooner.

what firm?

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
