    I worked for a restaurant in florida that was bought by a new owner. new owners stated they no longer needed a general manager. they refuse to pay me my last week salary plus money i had paid out of pocket for business expenses (have receipts). owners state i must contact the previous owner for reimbursement and of course he is not returning any of my calls.

    You can file a complaint with the state DOL for the unpaid wages. The law does not require that you be reimbursed for business expenses; you may have to file a claim in small claims court for that.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      And you may have to do the same for your wages. Whether or not the new owner is liable for wages earned before they owned the company would be set out in the acquisition contract.
