A: You can contact the Labor Commissioner's office by going to their website (https://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/). Once you get to the main page, click the link for labor law and then click the link for Wages, where you will find out how to file your wage claim. If they can help with your situation, they will make sure you get paid.

A: If you entered into a contract with the company to play the game for money and there was an agreement on payment terms and conditions, then the company is legally obligated to fulfill their end of the bargain. If they have failed to do so and are not responding to your emails, you may want to consider taking legal action against them.

You can first send a demand letter to the company stating the problem and demanding payment within a certain timeframe. If they still do not respond or fulfill their obligation, you can file a lawsuit against them in small claims court. You may want to consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
