Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Your employer must pay you for your work. They are not excused from this obligation because they deposited your money in the wrong account.
Your best course of action would typically be to quit and file a wage claim. An individual in your circumstance should be eligible for unemployment benefits because you are quitting for reasons amounting to good cause. The wage claim process is free and will result in the imposition of an award for your back pay, plus likely penalties and interest. To file a wage claim with the DLSE, visit this link: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/howtofilewageclaim.htm

Alternatively, you can remain employed and still file a wage claim. However, if you do this, you risk continuing to work for free. Certain penalties are also only available once you have quit and your employer fails to pay your earned wages. You will have to decide which option is best for you.
