We just found out that a large group of former employees were not paid overtime compensation during years 2008 09,10,11 and 2012. Some former employees don't have any records of paystubs that can prove we didn't get overtime compensation. We ask the former employer and he said that the secretary messed up with them and some got lost. What can we do to ask the former employer to produce those record and how far can we go back? The real problem is when we all punched in and out in a simple notebook, and the book was actually controlled and supervised by a third party (joint employer). Can we legally ask the third party to produce any records?
