What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CA
I have two returned paychecks stamped with nsf funds, one check which I was never paid at all,and two checks which were cashed at walmart that I could be held responsible for. I filed a wage claim last march and so far no action has taken by the california labor board. Today I spoke with unemployment and found out that My former boss didn't report my wages for 4 months in 2007, which caused my benefits to decrease. I think I need a lawyer but I don't have the money upfront to pay one since i'm still trying to make up for the $5,000 dollars I lost from the bad checks. what can I do to get some form of legal help?
