The checks are good for 90 days. You did not say whether or not you asked that they re-issue new checks. Have you tried this yet? If so, to what result?
I have not cashed them for 1 year.
I want to know my rights, and what to tell them so that I can qualify to get the checks paid.
If I tell them" I forgot", can they say: too bad, and my checks go bad?
If I tell them" I wanted to dispute the amount and I think you have to pay more, thats why I did not deposit them", sounds legit?
If I tell them I thought you are going to direcy deposit them and not a paper check thats why I did not open my mail, becaiuse I thought it was a receipt of the direct deposit", would that fly?
Sorry for the delay, my computer froze and I had to reboot. They owe you this money, it doesn't matter that you did not cash the checks. I would simply ask them to reissue them. If they do not, then you want to go ahead and contact the CA Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. The Division of Labor Standards Enforcement and the Office of the Labor Commissioner were established to adjudicate wage claims, investigate discrimination and public works complaints, and enforce Labor Code statutes and Industrial Welfare Commission orders. They'll get your money for you. Here's the website, should you need it: http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSE/
