What is the name of your state? live/work in CA, employer in NC
Timeline : Sept 13, employer 'X''s (a Nevada corporation) offices are taken over by new company 'Y' (led by former CEO of 'X'), who bought out 'X's' bank loan that was in default, all employees laid off (verbally). Sept 15, new company 'Y' asks me to work for them. I said yes. Sept 20, employer X files Chapter 11, and files adversary suit against new company 'Y' for taking over offices and business.
Oct 3. I am expecting a paycheck tomorrow from new company 'Y' for work done from Sept 21-30. No wages have been paid to me for work Sept 1-20.
Question 1.: Do I need to file a claim with bankruptcy court to get paid for earned wages and unpaid expense reports, or is paying employee wages and expenses part of the normal proceedings?
Question 2: Am I putting myself in any legal jeopardy by accepting wages from new company 'Y'?
This is a very small company, ceo of X and ceo of Y started the business together many years ago. As of Oct 1, they appear to be trying to work together to resolve this mess, but meanwhile I don't a full paycheck. And I can't really file for unemployment.
Thanks for your response.
