15 years after the fact is not going to matter to the employer or an attorney willing to handle the case, if you can find one, and if the company you worked for is still in business?. The fact that you have stated that this is one of Two reasons why you left the company indicates that things were really not that bad or you just did not really care, perhaps until now?. Start up time is when my employees arrive minus a 1/2 for lunch and when the day is done for clock out.
