    Answered . If your employer is suing you for money, good corporate standing is generally required. You need to double-check with a lawyer in KS.

    Anyone can file criminal charges, so get in touch with a criminal defense attorney.

    Answered . If you are talking about criminal charges the dissolution of the company will not prevent a conviction. The state files criminal charges, not the victim. The state can proceed with criminal charges and call the former employer as a witness against you. You need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney if you are charged with a crime.
