  • unpaid wages/ company filling bankruptcy California

    The company I worked for terminated me and refused to pay me. They even put a stop payment on my 2nd to last paycheck.They have now filed for bankruptcy. I have filed with the labor board and a hearing date is set. How will the bankruptcy affect my pay checks due to me and how will I get paid?

    you may wish to talk to a bankruptcy lawyer and certain "recent" wages may be priority in a bankruptcy, but that is not my area so talk to a bankruptcy attorney asap.

      another idea is that if the employer has control over your wages you may sue him individually under 558a of the California labor code. You will need a private attorney to do this as the labor board will not. This assumes only the company is going bankrupt and not the individual.
