If your employer owes you unpaid wages, you can file a wage claim with the California Department of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE).
Once you’ve decided to move forward with a wage claim, you should gather any documents you have showing that you weren’t paid properly.
You should also request your personnel file and payroll records from your employer as soon as possible.
It’s also helpful to create a timeline of events, starting from your date of hire and continuing to the present day.
