Legal Question

Asked on: 12/09/12, 6:07 pm

Iave some issues with my employer violating prevailing wage laws. I likr my job and I have asked many times in the last couple of years to comply with the rules which would mean I would be paid correctly. I have given him plenty of time to make this right. He knows the procedure. He makes his own rules, ones that he feels can use to get around paying te full amount or nothing at all. This is a stressful situation. He threatened to fire me because of it. Like I said, I like my job and I didn't want to file a complaint and be fired. Iwas hoping that he would realize that my efforts to get him to do what he already was supposed to be doing was a attempt to salvage our work relationship.It is really sad that Ihave a job that I have many years of experience My attitude is that if I don't want to lose it, don't do anything that could create that possibility. I can control that. Feeling insecure that I could lose my job because of what someone else is doing I can't control. The fact that he knows I know what he is doing and still continues to do it shows no respect for me. I have no choice left. I have to report this. My question is: When I do he will fire me. I know that would be a wrongful termination but do I have to go through that? Through all of this I have worked and I haven't let this situation change how I go about doing but it has gotten difficult. I need to find something else.If I quit so I can have the time to do that,Would I be compensated for any down time or be eligible for unemployment.?
