It sounds like a question for the office of the labor commissioner. Wages and hours is their business. I will say that Iowa is a right to work state, and that means you can be fired for any reason, good reason or no reason at all unless you have a contract of employment, are covered by a collective bargaining agreement, or the termination is due to race gender or disability discrimination.
