Hello and thank you for your question

To make a claim, you could file an unpaid wage claim here: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/howtofilewageclaim.htm

Additionally, because the check bounced, the second they are informed of this, for every day that you are not paid, you are owed a waiting time penalty from them. This penalty is equal to one full day of pay, and can go up to 30 days.

Additionally, because the check bounced, the second they are informed of this, for every day that you are not paid, you are owed a waiting time penalty from them. This penalty is equal to one full day of pay, and can go up to 30 days. The only defense they have against this penalty is if the mistake was made in good faith, i.e. they had no idea the check was going to bounce. So, if you inform them of this, then the penalty will accrue and you will be owed all your wages, your vacation pay, and the waiting time penalty.

Good Luck!
