If you can convince the hearing officer that your employer forged relevant documents, it could destroy their credibility and help your case. However, the decision should be based on all of the evidence produced at the hearing. Good luck.
If your wage claim is for enough money to make it worth hiring an attorney to handle the legal proceedings, you should do that. He would be able to use all that evidence to help your case. Call the local Lawyer Referral Service for attorney names if you can't get a good referral from friends. Or you could contact me for help if serious.
If you are in a larger company with a lot of employees may be they did not receive the wages and breaks that you and they are entitled to. If that is the case you may all have claims and possibly a class action. Just a thought. But as stated hard direct evidence that proves the employer's violation(s) is important. You should consider consulting an attorney especially if you find out that other coworkers have been also violated. I hope this helps. Bob
