I'm surprised that PA's labor and employment board has not acted on your behalf. He should absolutely face fines and payment of your owed wages. You really need an attorney to deal with this and to find and go after his assets. If you can't afford an attorney, try seeing if one close to you can do it on contingency or partial contingency. I know our firm handles issues in Lancaster on occasion on a partial contingency. Meaning, if we'd normally charge $5,000, then we would only get paid $2,000, but be entitled to a certain percentage of whatever is collected.
Nothing in this question or answer shall let any person or use (including the person who asked the question) the impression that Mr. Benari is their attorney or that the attorney-client relationship has been created. All answers given by Mr. Benari are made as if they were hypotheticals, and no true legal advice can be given unless Mr. Benari is retained and is provided with a complete set of all the facts involved.
