Working Off The Clock: Understanding Your Legal Rights
The business practices of Wal-Mart and others brought attention to surprisingly common workplace abuse: employers’ requirement that workers put in time off the clock.
By asking or requiring employees to work off the clock, employers gain several benefits. First and most obvious, employers obtain labor at no cost. They can also avoid paying overtime pay if an employee works over 40 hours in a week.
If you have been asked to work off the clock or have routinely worked off the clock for weeks, months or years, contact the Pasadena, California, law firm Bononi Law Group, LLP. We have resolved hundreds of employment law disputes in our more than two decades of employment law legal practice.
