Are you not receiving your full compensation for hours worked in your paycheck? Are you tracking your hours?
You deserve to be fully compensation for the time you worked. Employers are required to keep accurate records of all of the hours employees work. If an employee is told not to accurately report all hours worked, or the company is reducing the hours they report, you should contact an employment law attorney.
Unfortunately there are employers who have changed employees’ time in the time clock. We always recommend you track your hours, even if you are salary. One of the most common mistakes employers make is misclassifying employees. Qualifying exempt employees get salaries but not overtime pay.
With the new overtime pay laws this could change. There are several changes as a result of the Department of Labor’s announcement regarding updates to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
One way to fight back is to stop relying on company timekeeping systems that automatically keep their own record of the hours you have worked. It’s important to track your own hours to compare your record against the company’s. This also provides solid documentation for filing a claim.
