How to Make a Claim to the Unpaid Wage Fund

How does an employee claim funds that were sent to the Unpaid Wage Fund?

Answer: If you are an employee who was paid on a piece rate basis during the period of July 1, 2012 through December 31, 2015, the Labor Commissioner’s office may have collected wages for you from your employer for rest and recovery periods and other nonproductive time. If you believe your employer has paid those wages to the Labor Commissioner on your behalf, please complete this form and mail to the address below or take it to any local office of the Labor Commissioner.

The Labor Commissioner looks forward to getting your wages back to you.
