Types of off the clock work

When it comes to off the clock work, there are many things you need to take into consideration as an employee. Not only do you have rights, but you need to know how to discuss your concerns with your employer.

Off the clock work is exactly what it sounds like. This is when you are asked to complete work despite the fact that you are not clocked in and being paid for it. To better understand this, here are some of the most common examples:

-- Unpaid preparation. This includes things such as setting up a restaurant before your shift begins.

-- Unpaid post shift work. Are you asked to complete tasks after your shift has come to a conclusion?

-- Unpaid rework. This is when an employee is requested to redo a job without receiving pay.

-- Unpaid administrative work. This can include but is not limited to meetings with other employees, completing paperwork or training on your own time, without pay.

As an employee, it should not be difficult to pinpoint if you are working off the clock. This is something you should recognize, especially if it is being requested by your employer.

Here is the good thing: If you bring to this to the attention of your company, they may realize a mistake has been made. From there, you hopefully won't have to worry about the problem again in the future.

Conversely, there are times when an employer knows exactly what he or she is doing. Employees are asked to work off the clock so employers don't have to pay for the completed work. If you bring the problem to the attention of your employer and it still continues to occur, you may get answers on how to proceed from an employment law attorney.
