how does an employers personal bankruptcy effect a wage claim of illegal deductions and nonpayment of the last weeks paycheck?

in 2015 i filed a claim with thee illinois department of labor. My employer illegally deducted $200 a week from my paycheck for rent when there was no rental agreement, rent was supposed to be included in the salary and he also did not pay me my last weeks check when I was terminated. I filed a claim for the illegal deductions and the non-payment of the last weeks check. 6 months ago the claim specialist ruled there would be a hearing on the claims. Now he says he is investigating the bankruptcy because it may have a effect on my claim. What would the employers personal bankruptcy have anything to do with my claim that he illegally deducted money weekly from my paycheck and did not pay me my last check? The bankruptcy was filed in 2012, he was operating his business when i worked for him in 2015 and continues to operate today.
