I work for a California company that is winding down operations. The company has no cash on hand. I will be owed about $60,000 by the time we finish winding down. Half owed salary and half owed paid time off. I agreed to take material assets (plasma tv's, servers, furniture, etc) instead of the pay. The only other creditor will be the office building for future lease payments.
Who will have first right to the assets when the business is dissolved? What if the office building locks the suite and starts selling assets? Is there anything I should be doing now to protect the money I have due?
