  • Who can we turn to? Florida

    I'm a plumber living/working in the state of florida. The company I work for only pays employees riding time 1 way. Today our boss informed us that they will no longer pay any riding time. We show up at the shop at 5:30 am every morning and drive company fleet vans to and from the jobsite. Also, they only pay straight time for any hours you work over 40, and in some cases (most) never pay you at all, and just make up excuses for why they didn't decide to pay you. So my Boss says we can either come in 30 minutes early (off the clock) or work 30 minutes late (otc) to account for the new ride time policy. I know this is illegal, but Florida has no state agency that enforces labor laws, and I've found that the D.O.L. website doesn't have any clear references to people you can email/call to report activity like this. This is wrong. Who can I turn to?

    I would put in a claim/complaint with the US DOL. Here are some links re contact info etc.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
