Thanks, Mr. Perry. I forgot to include that my work agreement has a Governing Law/Forum Selection Clause specifying NY. Does that prohibit me from using an attorney in CA to pursue the matter? I consulted with one lawyer who recommended going through the DLSE for free without a lawyer, presumably because of that clause?

The clause does not prohibit you from using an attorney in California. If litigation occurred in NY, however, then you would need someone who is licensed there.
