  • Winning award in California, what next? California

    I recently won an award against my former company through the DLSE, it has been nearly a month and I have not received any notice of appeal. If they do not appeal who is responsible for collecting the judgement and is this usually time appropriate or do employers ignore the judgement? Basically, what can I expect now?

    You should inform the DLSE that the employer has not paid and the time to appeal is expired. I believe they will attempt to collect it through an action of the Franchise Tax Board. Alternatively, you can hire a collection agency or attorney and assign the award to them, but you will pay a % and or costs for them to collect.

      The answer to your question

      The DLSE award is not a court judgment but an order, and as such it is not really subject to judgment collection. The next step is filing a lawsuit in court for unpaid wages.

        Actually I believe the DLSE will seek an order based on their decision. Contact them to find out.
