Off-the-Clock Claims

Requiring employees to work off the clock is a win-win for businesses — employees further the company’s interests without costing it a dime. Requiring off-the-clock labor without pay, however, is illegal under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Working Off The Clock

Employers engage in a number of tactics to compel employees to work off the clock. Common examples include:

  • Failing to pay for training
  • Claiming the employee did not complete his or her duties sufficiently during the workday and should complete them after hours without pay
  • Failing to pay for prep time
  • Failing to pay for meetings
  • Requiring the employees to participate in promotion events, community outreach events and other functions without pay
  • Failing to pay for setup time such as putting on uniforms and equipment
  • Failing to pay for time spent dividing tips after a restaurant or bar shift.

If you have experienced any of the above or similar treatment at your job, you may have a valid wage and hour claim against your employer. Our attorneys can help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.
