Thank you for entrusting me to answer your question.
An individual in this circumstance can apply to the Superior Court for a judgment lien to enforce the judgment from the DLSE. Once the judgment lien is on file, the court will have authority to seize your former employer's assets to satisfy your judgment.
The form to file a judgment lein can be found here: http://www.ss.ca.gov/business/ucc/ra_9_jl1_barcode.pdf

If this individual is now working for another company themselves, you can also apply for a court order to garnish their wages, meaning any time they are paid a portion of their paycheck will go toward satisfying your award.
Very often, a simple, sternly worded letter to the employer EXPLAINING thee various options at your disposal will be enough to coerce them into paying you. It may be wise to attempt this as the first course of action.
I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX this information helps you and I wish you the best.
