Thank you for the information and your question. You might not like what I have to say, but it is based on my experience and the law. Although you can certainly present what evidence you have to the State prosecutor (this would be the County Attorney's Office that you would go to with your complaint), they are under no duty to prosecute any particular case if they don't believe they have the evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. That is called prosecutorial discretion and all prosecutors have it and use it to keep their convictions percentages high. So, for example, bad check cases are the absolute worst to prosecute because unless the defendant admits they knew they didn't have enough money or intended not to pay, convictions are hard to come by. They are also highly paper dependent, so proof and evidence issues are more onerous. But, in the end, even if the proof seems like it is there, they don't have to take the case.
Your absolute best way to get your money and perhaps get your boss in trouble is to file a wage complaint with the State or the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor. There are wage laws that can be enforced either civilly or criminally, but other agencies, versus the County or City Attorney handle it. They can also actually get your money for you if he has any and fine him, etc. You can file a wage complaint through that State by going to the following link: http://www.ica.state.az.us/labor/labor_wagclm_main.aspx
If you did not, for some reason, want to file a wage claim with the State or the U.S. DOL, you could file suit in civil court for the amount you are owed and up to twice what is owed as liquidated damages.
The above two options are actually how unpaid wages are handled, not through the bad check prosecution process, even when the checks were dishonored. Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
