The Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) is required to notify you of the following matters before you are asked to supply any private or confidential data ("information") about yourself.
You are filing a complaint asking the department to investigate a Minnesota employer's practices related to wages, hours and other conditions of employment of Minnesota employees. The information you supply may be used to determine whether there has been a violation of the prevailing wage law in the workplace, to contact you with follow-up question or to ask you to be a witness if the DLI commissioner finds the employer is violating the law.
You are not required to cooperate with the department's investigation unless DLI subpoenas the information from you. Further, you are not required to incriminate yourself in any possible criminal investigation and you may exercise your constitutional right to refuse to answer any request for information.
