In the state of California the wage claim process is free to current and former workers and is a government protected act. In other words, you don’t have to hire a lawyer and if your company finds out you filed a claim, and they fire you for it, it is considered retaliation and it is illegal. I went back to work with the intentions of completing what I was hired to do.
