Dang. 1700 out of 3200 hours? So more than half the time was fraudulent? That’s crazy. Heck, I get nervous when I wonder if I accounted for my lunch breaks correctly.


New company, new manner of accounting for time. I agree with Marko. cameras, log ons, sending emails from high and low side, access control to buildings…way too many ways of verifying. As a manager I am ony paid for 40 weekly, but it is a given I work a minimum of 45 to 50.

Isn’t working extra hours without pay a threat indicator? You should get paid for the time you put in. I know we’re trained to watch out for the people who put in extra time at the office without approval. Also in my environment if you were to get hurt when you weren’t on your official time that’s another big no no

Amberbunny is talking about except vs non-exempt.
