I was let go five days ago over the phone. I turned in my key and badge this morning and was told my final pay check would be direct deposited on my normal pay day, this Friday. Also, my accrued time off would be given to me in the form of a che...
Indian tribes are generally exempt from State law because they are sovereign nations. This includes most state laws and likely includes California Wage and Hour law. You may be able to file a grievance but if they are making you wait one week, it is unlikely that your grievance would be heard before you get the check, and I don't know that your damages would justify the expense of a lawsuit. I would write a letter demanding you check and see what happens. Sometimes tribe, and tribal entities will cooperate to avoid litigation and prevent grievances.

It sounds like you have exhausted your tribal appeals. You should do an open records request to ACF/OCFE to review the governing document. There may be provisions in these documents that give you some kind of relief.See question

You would need to petition the sentencing judge if he is still serving, or the court that sentenced you. Start by contacting the prosecutors. Most prosecutors and judges will not consider it. The courts want finality of judgments. If anyone could reopen there case matters would never be resolved. It is possible but difficult, and unlikely almost impossible without an experienced attorney.See question

If you plead guilty instead of going to a jury trial, could the sentence be lighter?
You report immediately after sentencing. In theory you would get a lighter sentence. But most prosecutors argue for harsher sentences if you go to trial, and some judges impose stiffer sentences. My personal philosophy on OWI charges is that you should go to trial. You are unlikely to much in negotiation unless you can show the prosecutor some problems with their case.See question
