My employer is being investigated by the Federal labor board
My employer is being investigated by the Federal labor board for not paying overtime. When I was hired in, I agreed not to be paid overtime. My employer said I would make lots if Monet working 60-70 hours per week and would make an hourly wage of $23.50 . My employer says the back overtime is a lot as she has to pay the back pay , plus a fine equal to the backpay owed to me. She has asked me to give her the back pay back to her, to keep my verbal agreement with her when I first hired in. The amountvis big about $12000. She says she cannot afford to give me this money as her company will go under if I don't give her this money back? What are your thoughts and the law concerning employer asking ng for back pay money back from the employee?

My employer has stopped paying my health insurance that I
My employer has stopped paying my health insurance that I have been promised. They paid for two months and then stopped without even telling me. I found out when I went for a physical. Also they owe me per diem money for a business trip I went on. Also I haven't gotten paid for my latest pay period. I am not sure how to recoup what's owed to me. Also I am not sure if I should keep working. It is a work from home job with an out of state employer.
