Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Your recourse here is to immediately file a wage claim with the CO Department of Labor. You can initiate that process online right now using the claim form here. It is important that you do this soon because if your employer is facing financial problems, it's going to become increasingly unlikely that they will have the money to pay what you are owed.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
