Should I call/write DLSE again or wait and be patient and quiet?

Carmel Valley, CA |

I've been working with the DLSE for about a year now involving an overtime claim/exemption issue and (more importantly) a retaliation claim. There had been some conversations with my agent but he did tell me it could take a long time for him to review my case/make a determination. I just don't want to drop the ball/be left out of the loop if I'm supposed to keep calling him or pushing.

It never hurts to sty in touch on an important issue like this, but you should understand the DLSE staffers frequently have large caseloads and insufficient resources to handle their work. I would recommend checking in from time to time, just to stay in touch.
