    USAJobs Resume - To include under-the-table job experience or not?

    I'm filling out the USAJobs resume builder for the current panel.

    A decent portion of my work experience was a 6 month job working under the table. Leaving it out of my resume leaves a good hole in my work experience and knocks out the opportunity to list some skills I can't squeeze in elsewhere. However, my employer never did pay payroll taxes and it was reported to the IRS as non-employee compensation in the year *after* I worked for her.

    Will this be a problem in either the hiring process or later in the security clearance stage?

    To make things worse - I left on bad terms with the employer because I was initially expecting to be a reported payroll employee, she owed me over $2,000 in unpaid wages, and it was hell getting that backpay from her.

    In short, I am worried this employer will make trouble for me but I hate to lose the work experience in my otherwise very thin resume.

    What would y'all recommend?

    You should include your work experience. They are not going to check with the IRS to verify if taxes were paid, but will check your employers to verify your work history.
    Hope this helps and good luck.

    I worked in construction and opted to leave all my under the table work off my app.
