What do I do if my paycheck bounced?

Question Details:

I now have a new job but I still have 2 paychecks from my old job. My old job issued many bad paychecks. After the 1st time one bounced, I started calling the bank; the funds were never available. I started demanding they pay me in cash with the paycheck stub because I didn't want another check to bounce. Under state law I could be entitled to up to $1500 but was wondering how I went about collecting that? I know that I need to at least try to cash the checks within 30days, which I will do, but I don't know what to do after that.
