Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed California attorney with extensive labor law experience. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a moment to formulate a response. Also, please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.
You may wish to begin by preparing a demand letter to your employer for the unpaid wages, unpaid overtime and any other claims you may have (such as unpaid rest breaks). Also, you should be aware that California employees can claim waiting time penalties for an employer's failure to timely page wages (click here for more information).
If the employer refuses to pay you the demanded amounts, or if you feel that a demand letter would not be beneficial, you can proceed to filing a claim with the California Department of Labor (click here for information on filing a claim).
2 weeks' notice is generally just an accepted courtesy of employment, unless your contract for employment with the company requires 2 weeks' notice, this would not be a legal requirement.

Yes, you may. Depending on the type claim, you have between 2 to 4 years to file it.
Also, any time that you work, you are entitled to pay and can include all of that time in the claim.
You're very welcome! Good luck!
