Denver, CO asked in Employment Law, Business Law, Landlord - Tenant and Municipal Law for Colorado

Q: US DOL granted former employer 3M credit for which she did not qualify. How is that being honored?

The "managers apt" has never had heat due to the pipes being removed during a remodel a few yrs ago.Owner is providing a residence that is in violation of state codes which disqualifies her from getting the 3M credit. This is our 2nd winter up here w/o heat.

2) Because I still reside on property an alternate address was documented. The very 1st piece of mail I received from the US DOL was sent to the motel, where it was intercepted by an employee & shown to owner after which I received it 1 wk past post marked date.Owner is still retaliating.DOL said I was a day too late to be protected. Letter stated they would keep my identity confidential to the fullest extent under current law. A supervisor determined that I would not receive liquidated damages from FLSA.. I had to take former employers word on $$ she owed me b/c I never received anything finalizing my case

A: I am not sure how the US Dept. of Labor is related to landlord tenant issues. Are you asking how a person who allegedly has an uninhabitable apartment for lease can also receive a federal grant? If so, a US DOL grant is not related to civil landlord-tenant disputes; some criminal charges can impact grants. You will need to contact a lawyer directly if you have a landlord problem.
