1) It is necesarry to file claims in the bankruptcy matter.

2) In bankruptcy, there is a priority for payment of wage claims that accrued shortly before the bankruptcy.

3) If you are in Northern California you can contact my office to discuss further.

4) You can also contact the Cal. Labor Commissioner who may be able to help. Search information for the office in your area.
