I have not approached employee, I did not want to make things worse. I should never have agreed to this from the start. He is still working although on vacation that was planned when he started working for us. I am not sure what to do, I really do not think he is not going to sign any waiver or settle with me. From what I have seen of him recently I believe he is the kind of person that is just waiting for an opportunity to make a quick buck and possible ruin a business on top of it. I am not sure what he is after, I just know that as a small business of this kind there is not enough money to fight and not much for him to win either.
My thought was to step up, admit I was wrong here, hopefully avoid a more costly issue for me by paying him the overtime now. I don"t know if I legally have a defense here. I agreed to let him work the overtime at straight pay.
