Wow! My eyes are wide-open now!

Is this civil penalty paid to DOL or the employee? Is this only awarded if DOL prosecutes?

The civil money penalty is only pursued if the violation was willful, usually proven by either repeated violations or knowingly making the wrong decision.

I honestly don't know if this money goes to the employee or the DOL. Do any other readers know who gets to keep the money?
