California Department of Labor

The Department of Industrial Relations was established to improve working conditions for California's wage earners, and to advance opportunities for profitable employment in California. Find information on Worker's Compensation, Occupational Safety & Health, California Labor Law, Apprenticeship, Mediation & Conciliation, and statistics & research.

The California Department of Labor may be able to help you with a claim for unpaid wages that is too small for an attorney to get involved. You may want to contact an attorney to make sure there are not other violations that your employer committed that an attorney should also be involved to help you with.
