Unpaid wages

I got a contract job offer and I started working there through an consulting agency. The consulting agency signed a contract with the client for me. I had a verbal contract with the consulting agency that they will give me x% of the billing rate. I didn't have a written contract with them. After nearly two months of work, they never paid me. The contract was over after two months and the consulting agency never paid me. I took up a new job and asked them to clear my dues. They said they will not pay me. They signed a contract with the client and collected money for my work. I have all proof of my work for the two months. Can you tell me what should I do and what are my rights?

If you can prove the work adn taht you were an employee and not an independent contractor, you should be able to maintain a wage claim with penalties. You can file this yourself with the California Labor Commissioner or, if the amounts warrant attorney involvement call Matt Kaufman, a good employment rights attorney in your area. 818-990-1999
Tell him I directed you to him by this email.
