Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

Unfortunately, since you were terminated in 2005, the statute of limitations on your wage claim has run, since it is four years for a written contract and two years for an oral contract, so you wouldn't be able to go after the remaining funds at this point.

I wish I had better news to give you, but I hope you appreciate a direct and honest answer to your question.

They also put a restraining order (permenante injunction on me) as I was yelling when fired, plus fabricated stalking claims. I was unable to go to any of the hearings was not notified. How difficult is it going to be get that RO removed? If your going to charge me again please DON'T ANSWER..
