What can I do if I have worked for an LLC that bounced my paycheck?

The owner stated that he would pay the bank fees and cover the check. It took months to get the majority of my pay. Ever since then, it takes a month of me asking to get my pay. Now he still owes me the fees and my pay.

You can sue him for the money, including possibly in small claims court, where you could act as your own attorney, saving on court fees. He is legally obligated to pay you for all work you did; and if his negligence (carelessness) or intentional bad act caused a check to bounce and you to incur various fees or penalities, he could be liable for those, too.
