How do I report a illegal timesheet edit without disclosing my identity?

Due to the fact my shift ends during lunch time, I never get off on time however, I've recently noticed that my time sheets have been edited to show that I'm clocking out on time. When management was confronted about this, they informed me that they don't pay me to work slow. (Even though I'm helping customers) I know this is illegal, but I don't want to get in a lawsuit. I'm just tired of them stealing from people. Is there a way I can report this without disclosing my identity?

You may file a complaint with the United States Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division. Complaints are confidential and your identity is not revealed unless, with your permission, it is necessary in order to pursue an allegation. Confidential, anonymous or not, the law prohibits retaliation for filing a complaint. It would probably be a good idea to speak to an attorney to find out what can be done to prevent this from occurring in the future and to evaluate whether your potential claim or the claims of other similarly situated employees can or should be pursued.
