I found a resume copy my company sent/sends out for contract jobs that may be included on government civil engineering contracts. It’s not mine or very accurate.

I’ve been doing “inspection” work for my company over the last 5 years. I know clients ask for a resume of our work and the “inspectors” work, but never knew what we sent out. I found what my company sends out by accident, and it lists, falsely, a number of my experiences and known skills. I don’t know what to do. They only pay me $20,000 a year and the jobs listed are in the multi-millions. The company making hundreds of thousands off me, and me seeing none of it along with a false resume has me upset. I feel I’m being wronged and put in a dangerous place that could harm me if found out.

A) Are you under a contract? If not, you may be jeopardizing your job since most states follow the "at-will" employment law.  This means absent retaliation and discriminatory reasons, your employer can fire you with or without cause.

As to what they are doing, they are falsifying information, which could jeopardize the status/validity of any kind of license they hold.  Your best bet, consult with a labor lawyer at www.attorneypages.com.  Check his or her record at the South Carolina State Bar.
