My question involves judgment recovery in the State of: California
I have just completed a wage claim with the California Dept of Labor, and they sent me a letter with my judgment that states "In accordance with Section 98.2(d) of the California Labor Code, a judgment has been entered in my name with the court against your former employer."
The document then goes on to say that I have 15 days to give the Franchise Tax Board the authority to attempt collection on the unpaid judgment.
"If you choose to use this collection method, please be advised that you will not receive status reports on your file and the collection efforts may take up to one year or longer."
This doesn't really give me much hope I'll ever receive money from my former employer.
Does anyone have experience with the Franchise Tax Board and if they actually do collect judgments? Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
