Our paychecks have been consistently bouncing for a couple of months now. Usually we're immediately issued a replacement check that goes through without a problem. Two weeks ago however, everyone's checks bounced and the replacement checks have too. Today is payday. We still haven't been paid from two weeks ago, we know there is no money to cover today's checks, and out penalty checks are "on hold". According to the labor board those penalty fees are not optional, but is there a time frame in which they have to pay them? How long can they go without paying us our regular wage? What options do I have to get this money faster, and what happens to us if the company declares bankruptcy? Thank you for your time.
