The commissioner may issue an order requiring
an employer to comply with sections 177.21 to 177.435, 181.02, 181.03, 181.031,

, new text begin181.722, new text endand 181.79, or with any rule promulgated under section 177.28. The
commissioner shall issue an order requiring an employer to comply with sections 177.41
to 177.435 if the violation is repeated. For purposes of this subdivision only, a violation
is repeated if at any time during the two years that preceded the date of violation, the
commissioner issued an order to the employer for violation of sections 177.41 to 177.435
and the order is final or the commissioner and the employer have entered into a settlement
agreement that required the employer to pay back wages that were required by sections
177.41 to 177.435. The department shall serve the order upon the employer or the
employer's authorized representative in person or by certified mail at the employer's place
of business. An employer who wishes to contest the order must file written notice of
objection to the order with the commissioner within 15 calendar days after being served
with the order. A contested case proceeding must then be held in accordance with sections
14.57 to 14.69. If, within 15 calendar days after being served with the order, the employer
fails to file a written notice of objection with the commissioner, the order becomes a
final order of the commissioner.
