Common Overtime Violation: Not Counting Hours Worked

Common Overtime Violation - Not Counting Hours Worked

One of the most common overtime violation falls under not counting hours worked. Even if an employer properly classifies an employee as nonexempt, the employer might violate the law by undercounting employee hours by, for example:

– Requiring employees to work “off the clock” – before clocking in or after clocking out,
– Requiring employees to work through unpaid rest or meal breaks,
– Requiring, expecting, or allowing employees to do extra work at home that’s not compensated
not counting time employees spend putting on or taking off protective gear and clothing at the worksite,
– Not counting time spent on required training and other mandatory activities.
