My agency, federal, switch insurance on me after I asked

My agency, federal, switch insurance on me after I asked them not to. In November I made the switch but it never took affect. My previous insurance kept charging me and I had their cards. I unfortunately had to be hospitalized then my agency contacts me a month after to let me know they made a mistake and that I owed back money to the one I asked to be switch to. I told them that had it been a month earlier it would be ok and that I would switch next year. Because I have Drs appointments, rehab and specific medicine under my previous insurance. Just wandering if I can sue my agency for their mistake that they are having me carry the burden.

I voluntarily left my previous job almost three months ago,

I voluntarily left my previous job almost three months ago, but have not received my last pay. They owe me about $3500 in gross pay. I have exchanged e-mails with them, and they have gone as far as to say (two weeks ago) that the "checks are in the mail." I think the real problem is that they just don't take this matter seriously. How can I apply pressure to my former employer to motivate them to send me my pay?

My ex-employer is sleeping inside his franchised ice cream

My ex-employer is sleeping inside his franchised ice cream store, taking money out of the paychecks belonging to people working shifts where cash may be missing, not giving pay stubs with paychecks, not serving correct ingredients (therefore not complying with corporate contract), having his fourteen year old son serve ice cream and work for no pay in his store, refusing to send me a replacement final paycheck when all I did was lose the original, then sending me a paycheck with no signature, therefore making me waste my time and gas to drive to the store and get him to sign the check, which I haven't done yet, and demanded that I compensate money missing, which I refused to since I am innocent from any theft but still gave $38 as it was much less than what was initially demanded.I don't want the few workers, especially the poor fourteen year old kid, still working there to suffer my past boss's antics; is there something that can be done to change things? Should I contact a health inspector? How I should handle my final paycheck situation?
