Working Off The Clock

In order to avoid overtime pay, many employers force their employees to perform tasks “off the clock.” If your employer is requiring you to perform any tasks without being compensated, you may be entitled to compensation for unpaid overtime or minimum wage violations. Here are some commons occurrences of off-the-clock work:

• Requiring work to be done before a shift starts. Such as counting medication, pre-shift meetings, loading work vehicles, getting keys, and other prep work.

• Requiring work to be done after the scheduled shift ends. Such as paperwork, post-shift meetings, clean up, finishing tasks the “should have been finished,” showering to remove harmful chemicals, and giving report.

• Deducting meal breaks which employees did not take or took with interruptions.

• Intimidation tactics or “no-overtime” rules.

• Working from home or responding to emails outside of shifts.

• Not paying for orientation, training or other meetings.

• Not paying for travel time after starting your workday.

You should not assume that your employer is following the law if you are required to be at work or do work but are not being paid. You should contact an overtime attorney to find out if you are owed compensation.
