My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: California
Admittedly, I quit my job quite abruptly (for health reasons), but now my former boss refuses to pay me roughly 3 weeks worth of wages from before I quit UNLESS I go in (on a day and at a time HE choses) and train his next employee. It has already been a week, but he has absolutely no time line as to when he would like me to go in, and he is also unwilling to pay for my time training his next employee.
I would really like to avoid returning to his office, or ever speaking to him again, as he was a terrible employer, but filing a claim with the Department of Labor and Wages seems too complicated and will take a very long time; and I don't have a car or access to one (you have to file in person, I believe).
Any advice would be much appreciated! I'm really desperate.
