What to do about unpaid overtime?

I just found out that my employer has not paid me overtime for the last 4 years because he thinks he is exempt. I have known him most my life and generally trust people so I dug a little more and have found he has also shorted me in some commissions and bonus checks. I have also always filed my taxes online but this year went to an actual firm and they question how I receive a W-2 for hourly pay and monthly bonus but then get a 1099 MISC for commissions. All of my work is done in a retail store with set hours so I am not an independant contractor.
