My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Minnesota
I started working in housekeeping at a motel in my town the end of November. My paychecks I was needing to report for income would be for December 1st and 16th. I was informed he pays under the table...doesn't take any taxes out for the first 2 checks..needless to say he still hasn't. He won't be handing out a w-2 so I'm not sure how to handle that for taxes this year.
Next problem with him is he refuses to pay for actual hours worked. For example the other day I worked 7 hours cleaning the rooms. He says based on how many rooms there were it should have taken me 6 hours and is only paying me for 6 though I worked a full 7. Is that legal? What do I do if it isn't?
Another problem I'm having is he's very very upset I was requesting for unemployment because I work less than 32 hours a week. Most weeks I work only 10 at the most. If he refuses to fill it out can he fire me because he doesn't want to deal with it? Basically with all the issues I'm having should I just stick it out because this economy is so hard and I can't seem to find another job elsewhere...believe me I've tried or can/should I take some kind of action?
