Dear Redding, California:
Thank you for the additional information. I did find the case that you were discussing. I've also advised the well-known legal data base I initially checked that something is wrong with their indexing. It should have shown up.
I did check to see if the case has been cited in any decisions since it was made three weeks ago. It has not been.
Published appellate decisions are binding in the appellate district they were decided in. Bradstreet was decided in the First Appellate District. I believe Redding is in the Third Appellate District. Court in the Third Appellate District don't have to follow First Appellate District decisions, but most will.
Since Bradstreet v. Wong specifically addressed the authority of the DLSE (Division of Labor Standards Enforcement)/Labor Commissioner to seek recovery from individual owners, I would expect that the Labor Commissioner would follow the Bradstreet v. Wong decision in your case.
If the Labor Commissioner can't help you, if your boss, as an individual, did personally guaranty that he would pay your wages and he did not, you could sue for Breach of Contract as a third party beneficiary. You could sue in Small Claims court, but the jurisdiction is only $5000. If your boss owes you money for several weeks, though, you could file separate actions. For example, if he owes you $3000 for one week and $3000 for a different week, you could file two separate lawsuits.
