My question involves business law in the state of: CA
I work for a small software company which places its employees with various client companies on contract. I have an administrative job.
One client company owes us 3 months of payment for the work of one of our employees. Our employee has been paid regularly by my employer and now, has been moved to a different project.
The client company has been difficult from the start. They send us cheques which are returned by the bank due to insufficient funds, they inform us of cheques sent in the mail that are never actually mailed and now, they refuse to answer calls or respond to emails.
The client company owes us a large sum that we cannot afford to lose. What options do we have, short of taking them to court?
