I am pretty sure I answered this question last week. You can press you unpaid wage claim any time you want as long as you do not wait past the statute of limitations. You need to decide if you want to file it now or in a little while to let them cool down. However, it seems likely a claim to the DLSE for unpaid wages will re-upset them and you will face the claim later. It is up to you.
Good luck to you
