Am I in violation of the fmla law

I'm a sworn peace officer and injured my left hand. I'm currently on fmla but had some unfinished administrative work that needed to be completed. I went to my job on my time to get the work done. I didn't clock in nor did I put on a uniform. An unidentied individual made a complaint against me stating that I shouldn't be at the job while on fmla. Am I in violation of any laws? Please help and thank you in advance for your attention to this email.

Not the FMLA law. The FLSA law. Chicago area police just recovered enormous sums of money for working off the clock.

Your union, managers and the municipality you work for could all pay dearly. Individual managers can be held personally liable under the FLSA for not complying with federal wage and hour laws.

Don't work off the clock. And if/when you become an administrator or manager never allow anyone to do so!
