Not Letting You Record Overtime


Does Your Boss Prevent You From Recording Overtime?

You work hard to earn a living. Whether you’re a freelance contractor or a full-time employee, you deserve to receive the payment you’ve been promised. It seems simple: people should be paid for the work they do. Unfortunately, however, many employers actually steal wages from their workers through unfair or illegal practices. Often, victims of wage theft don’t even realize their money is being stolen.

Prohibiting you from recording the overtime hours you work is a type of wage theft. You have the right to be paid for every moment your supervisor asks you to work. Unfortunately, some bosses do not respect their employees’ time and labor, resulting in wage theft.

You may be a victim of wage theft if your boss or supervisor has done any of the following:

  • -Asked you to continue working after you clock out
  • -Asked you to complete tasks or work prior to clocking in
  • -Prevented you from recording overtime hours worked at any time
  • -Told you to work “under the table” or “as a favor,” implying that you would not be paid
  • -Asked you to complete additional training outside of regular working hours, without recording that time as overtime

You should always be entitled to the products of your hard work. If your boss is preventing you from recording overtime hours in these or other ways, you do not have to suffer in silence. An experienced attorney will listen to your story and may be able to help you recover the wages that were stolen from you, possibly including additional money for emotional damages suffered as a result of the theft.
