Legal Question

Asked on: 9/23/11, 7:24 pm

So, here's the story. My girlfriend works at a local restaurant and gets paid under the table. Her weekly pay comes out of the cash register, but the cash register doesn't have enough money to pay the whole staff. So she goes for two or three weeks without pay. She is legal, but there are many people in the kitchen who are not and in the same situation. They are in an even worse situation because the employer owes some of them thousands of dollars. She is owed $600 which is a good chunk of money for two college students. The ownership of the restaurant has changed and the new owner is saying that he is not responsible for the back pay and to talk to the previous owner. We live in the State of Florida and are wondering what options we have.
