1) Nolo Press is a great resource. Their books can be found in many public libraries. See: https://www.employmentlawfirms.com/resources/employment/overtime-pay/getting-a-waiting-time-penalty-also see https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/how-prepare-wage-hearing-california.html) for-refusal-to-pay-overtime for more information. The attorneys at Smith and Lo (a firm I have no connection to) wrote a very informative article on wage claims in California and can be found online at https://www.worklawyers.net/how-to-file-wage-claim-california-dlse/. Another good source of information is the California Department of Industrial Relations webpage at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/faq_paydays.htm).
