amended,  are  excluded  “when  that  act  imposes  comparable  or
greater requirements than contained” in this Act.  However, to be
excluded,  the  employer  must  file  with   the  Executive Director  of
the Kentucky Office of Workplace Standards a statement that he is
covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended.

matter of any investigation undertaken pursuant to this Act.  If a

employer  violates  this  Act  willfully,  he  is  liable  for  an  additional
equal  amount  as  liquidated  damages.    The  court  may  order  other
appropriate action, including reinstatement of employees discharged
in violation of this Act.
The employee or employees affected may maintain an action to collect
the amount due.  At the written request of any employee, the Executive
Director  may  bring  any  legal  action  necessary  to  collect  the  claim
for unpaid wages in behalf of the employee.

legal action or voluntary wage restitution.

months after the cause of action occurs.

conspicuous place in or about the premises wherein any employee is
employed.

against an employee because such employee has:

(b) instituted or caused to be instituted any proceeding under or related to this Act, or
(c)  testified or is about to testify in any such proceedings, shall be assessed a civil penalty of not less than $100 nor more than
