No. If it feels wrong it probably is wrong.

You have no choice but to honestly report your earnings to DOL. Do not fall into the trap of letting your boss have that type of behavior hang over you.

Think of what else the boss may ask you to do and how dishonest or incredible you may appear for some other future matter should you have to blow the whistle on your boss for illegal behavior.

Who will believe you then? And DOL fraud is a big deal.
