Bounced Payroll and Late Payroll

I work in a small recruitment firm of 3 people. 2 Partners and I am the Sr Associate. Payroll has been repeatedly late and the June 15th Paycheck bounced (a previous payroll check bounced in 2009)causing me to be overdrawn, I have yet to be compensated. I also know that the company will accept stock/equity from clients instead of cash, thus delaying payroll.

What are recommended next steps? Due to my situation I can't afford a consultation.

You can call the New York State Department of Labor (or the US DOL) and report unpaid wages. They will conduct an investigation and, if they conclude you are owed wages, they will order your employer to pay you.
