    One employee can complain about unpaid OT, and If the DOL feels there's a case there they wll go after all employee records, for years. The employer gets dinged not only for what is owed the complaining employee, but every other employee that got ripped off. And according to the annual "scare the shit out of supervisors" training we get from our employer's legal counsel the DOL has lately been on a bit of a tear about this issue because so many folks are being misclassified as "exempt" or "contract" in attempts to duck wage and hour laws.

    •  oh, and did you know that it is a federal (4+ / 0-)

      violation of law for a business NOT to have clearly posted the E.E.O.C information where all employees can see it?

      also, for auto sales, in california, the licenses of ALL auto sales reps MUST be posted in a visible place for the public to view. personal information may be taped over, but the licenses (looks like a ca drivers license) is proof that the rep has passed an extensive background check, been fingerprinted, has no felony conviction, etc.

      it's worth taking a look to see if a dealership has this posted.  the good ones do.
