Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

Under California law, an employer is required to pay all wages within 72 hours of when you retire or resign your job.

You should file a claim with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement for the amount in unpaid vacation pay, floating holidays, and your last week of pay, plus one day of wages per day that you've had to wait to receive your final paycheck.

You can file a claim using the forms available here:
