Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed California attorney. I would like to help you with this question, but please understand that I can only provide you with general legal advice. I'm sorry to hear that you have been taken advantage of by your past employer.
In order to file a claim against the restaurant, you would need to file a complaint with the California Labor Commissioner. You could retain an attorney if you want, but you first will need to go through a labor commissioner hearing before you can file suit in court for your damages. The labor commissioner could determine that you are owed wages and order the employer to pay compensation to you. I hope this helps, and good luck!
